What Security Administrators must know about Microsoft Patches?

Microsoft publishes a Security Bulletin Summary each month to notify customers of the security updates they have made to address vulnerabilities in Microsoft products. The security updates are released on the second Tuesday of the month, commonly known as patch Tuesday. Individual Security Bulletins, identified within the monthly summaries, each describe a set of vulnerabilities and are linked to from the Security Bulletin Summary page.

Help protect your computing environment by keeping up to date on Microsoft technical security notifications. Notifications are available in RSS, instant message, mobile device, or e-mail format, and are also available online.

What are Microsoft Security Advisories?

Microsoft Security Advisories, a supplement to the Microsoft Security Bulletins, address security changes that may not require a security bulletin but that may still affect customers’ overall security. These advisories are a way for Microsoft to communicate security information to us (customers) about issues that may not be classified as vulnerabilities and may not require a security bulletin.
