Security Tip of the Month: Prioritizing Microsoft Security Update Deployment Using Severity Ratings and the Updated Exploitability Index Microsoft has established a predictable process for releasing security updates on the second Tuesday of each month. Each security update carries two pieces of information that help with the prioritization process: the severity rating and the Exploitability Index. Explore each of these items in detail and learn how, taken separately, each gives an indication of the risk of a vulnerability being exploited while, taken together, both can add a new dimension of information that can help with prioritization decisions.

Behind the Curtain of Second Tuesdays: Challenges in Software Security Response This presentation discloses some of the challenges seen by the MSRC in addressing modern vulnerabilities. As SDL weeded out the simple buffer overflow, vulnerabilities have become more complex in nature and thus more challenging to address. The goal is to provide insight into Microsoft's techniques and processes in responding to these challenges and to provide lessons learned to other organizations in similar situations.
