As part of the monthly security bulletin release cycle, Microsoft provides advance notification to our customers on the number of new security updates being released, the products affected, the aggregate maximum severity and information about detection tools relevant to the update. This is intended to help our customers plan for the deployment of these security updates more effectively.

In addition, to help customers prioritize monthly security updates with any non-security updates released on Microsoft Update, Windows Update, Windows Server Update Services and Software Update Services on the same day as the monthly security bulletins, we also provide:

• Information about the release of updated versions of the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool.
 
• Information about the release of NON-SECURITY, High Priority updates on Microsoft Update (MU), Windows Update (WU), Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and Software Update Services (SUS).
 

Note that this information will pertain ONLY to updates on Microsoft Update, Windows Update, Windows Server Update Services and Software Update Services and only about High Priority, non-security updates being released on the same day as security updates. Information will NOT be provided about Non-security updates released on other days.

NOTE: Microsoft Software Update Services (SUS) is slated for retirement on 6 December 2006. The November 2006 Monthly Bulletin release is the last Monthly Bulletin release that will be supported by SUS.

SUS customers are urged to complete their upgrades to Windows Server Update Services 2.0 (WSUS) before the December 2006 Monthly Bulletin release on 12 December 2006. For more information on WSUS, please see http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserversystem/updateservices/default.mspx.

On 14 November 2006 Microsoft is planning to release:

Security Updates

• One Microsoft Security Bulletin affecting Microsoft XML Core Services. The highest Maximum Severity rating for this is Critical. These updates will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer. These updates will require a restart.
 
• Five 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.
 

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

• Microsoft will release No NON-SECURITY High-Priority Updates for Windows on Windows Update (WU) and Software Update Services (SUS).
 
• Microsoft will release two NON-SECURITY High-Priority Updates on Microsoft Update (MU) and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS).
 

Although we do not anticipate any changes, the number of bulletins, products affected, restart information and severities are subject to change until released.

Microsoft will host a webcast next week to address customer questions on these bulletins. For more information on this webcast please see below:
