Hello,

This is Christopher Budd. Today, August 9, 2007 is the Thursday before the scheduled August bulletin release day, August 14, 2007. As we do each month, today we’ve posted our Advance Notification for the August 2007 release.

Next Tuesday, we’re currently planning to release nine security bulletins:

·         Six Microsoft Security Bulletins affecting Microsoft Windows with a Maximum Severity rating of Critical. These updates will require a restart and will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer and the Enterprise Scan Tool. 

·         One Microsoft Security Bulletins affecting Microsoft Office with a Maximum Severity rating of Critical. These updates will not require a restart and will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer.

·         One Microsoft Security Bulletin affecting Microsoft Office and Microsoft Windows a Maximum Severity rating of Critical. This update will require a restart and will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer.

·         One Microsoft Security Bulletin affecting Microsoft Virtual PC and Microsoft Virtual Server with a Maximum Severity rating of Important. This update will require a restart and will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer and the Enterprise Scan Tool.

Remember that here we’re providing the maximum severity for any of the updates per product. Specific details about severity per-bulletin as well as additional details about the affected versions can be found in the Advance Notification posted on the web.

 

We are also planning to release an update to the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool.

Finally, we are planning to release four high-priority non-security updates on Microsoft Update and two on Windows Update.

Remember that this information is to help with your advance planning for the Tuesday release: this information can change between now and the release on Tuesday. If things do change or we have new information about the release, we will let you know through this weblog.

Please join me and Mike Reavey on the day after release, Wednesday August 15, 2007 at 11 AM Pacific Time for our monthly bulletin webcast. We’ll be reviewing the bulletins and, most importantly, answering your questions on the air with information that our subject matter experts have put together. If you can’t make the live webcast, remember you can listen to it on-demand after it’s done. You can register for the live or on-demand webcast here:
