Microsoft Security Bulletin Advance Notification Announcement

In response to consumer feedback, Microsoft is expanding its security bulletin program to provide all customers with advance information about upcoming monthly security updates.

Starting in November 2004, the TechNet Security site will publish a general summary of planned security bulletin releases three business days before each regularly scheduled monthly bulletin release. Currently, security bulletins are scheduled to be released on the second Tuesday of each month.

The advance notifications will include the number of bulletins that might be released, the anticipated severity ratings, and the products that might be affected.

The purpose of the advance notification is to assist customers with resource planning for the monthly security bulletin release. The information provided in the notification will be general and will not disclose vulnerability details or other information that could put customers at risk.

Why do we need advance notification? I just wait until I get the actual update notification. After all it is only at this time that you can do anything about it.

It appears that "customers" have asked for it. I don't need it either.

It is useful to know what is coming and of course, getting the advance notification helps you to remember to prepare for Patch Tuesday

It takes but a few seconds to create a System Restore point. I certainly don't need three days.

This month's updates are coming a bit earlier than usual, and contain one critical security fix (KB935423 - vulnerability in Windows Animated Cursor Handling).

These large MS updates always worry me - there have been a number of disasters in the past with them.

Ensure you have full backup(s) of your system(s) before allowing these updates to be downloaded/installed.
