Want to better understand and use Microsoft security release information, processes, communications, and tools? Download the new Microsoft Security Update Guide for IT professionals, designed to help you manage organizational risk and develop a repeatable, effective deployment mechanism for security updates. In this Guide, you will find a convenient glossary of terms, an overview of the Microsoft Security Bulletin process, and a stage-by-stage review of Microsoft Security Updates.

 

Also on the security front, you can now download the Microsoft Office Visualization Tool (OffVis), a free tool designed to help combat file format-based software vulnerabilities and exploits. OffVis enables you to better understand and deconstruct Microsoft Office-based attacks. As a result, security vendors can build deeper, more precise malware detection signatures and develop new techniques for analyzing malware.

 

More to come,
