Hello,

This is Christopher Budd and today is the Thursday before the scheduled September 2007 bulletin release on Tuesday Sept. 11, 2007.

As we do each month, as part of our processes to help make security updates more predictable and assist with your planning, we’ve posted our Advance Notification with preliminary information about next week’s release. As a reminder, we provide this early information to help with planning, but it can change between now and next Tuesday.

As part of our regularly scheduled bulletin release, we’re currently planning to release five security bulletins:

·         One Microsoft Security Bulletin 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. 

·         One Microsoft Security Bulletin affecting Microsoft Visual Studio with a Maximum Severity rating of Important. These updates will not require a restart and will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer and the Enterprise Scan Tool.

·         One Microsoft Security Bulletin affecting Microsoft Windows Services for UNIX and the  Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications 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.

·         One Microsoft Security Bulletin affecting Microsoft MSN Messenger, Windows Live Messenger with a Maximum Severity rating of Important. This update will not require a restart. These products provide built-in mechanisms for automatic detection and deployment of updates. 

We are also planning to release an update to the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool as we do each month.

Finally, we are planning to release one high-priority, non-security update on Microsoft Update and none on Windows Update.

Here’s a reminder to join me and Mike Reavey next Wednesday, September 12, 2007 at 11 a.m. Pacific Time for our regular 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:

Thanks,

Christopher

Update:

 

Hello this is Christopher again.  I wanted to let you know that we have updated our posting because we will only be releasing 4 security bulletins: the bulletin identified as the Microsoft Windows and Microsoft SharePoint Server bulletin will not be released on Tuesday.

 

We continue to plan to release the 4 remaining bulletins referenced above.

 

Christopher
