Microsoft Modifies Monthly Patch Advance Notification
On the Thursday before the second Tuesday of each month, Microsoft provides a notification of the patches that they are expecting to release on the following Tuesday. Until now, the notification has broken down how many patches in total are expected, what platforms and product groups they are for, and the maximum severity of the patches within a given group.
Starting with June's Security Patch release, Microsoft will be providing more detailed information about the patches due for release. This information will include maximum severity rating, impact of the vulnerability, detection information, and affected software - for each patch.
In addition, Microsoft have changed the layout of each bulletin to reduce the amount of duplicated information, and to make it easier to find the critical information in the advisory.
