Another Tuesday Windows Security Update
Microsoft has another important one coming tomorrow, August 8th, 2006. If you allow the update tomorrow you should expect a reboot to occur.
Ten Microsoft Security Bulletins affecting Microsoft Windows. The highest Maximum Severity rating for these is Critical. These updates will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer and the Enterprise Scan Tool. Some of these updates will require a restart.
Two Microsoft Security Bulletins affecting Microsoft Office. The highest Maximum Severity rating for these is Critical. These updates will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer. These updates may require a restart.
Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool
Microsoft will release an updated version of the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool on Windows Update, Microsoft Update, Windows Server Update Services and the Download Center.
Note that this tool will NOT be distributed using Software Update Services (SUS).
Non-security High Priority updates on MU, WU, WSUS and SUS
Unless your habits invite problems I typically recommend waiting 5–7 days before installing updates. Given the changes being made to Office, a tool you may use a lot, I would go for the full 7 days. Let everyone else test the changes for a week. You can set your Windows Update settings to automatically download or just let you know the updates are available, but it doesn’t mean you have to install them.
