  • Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA), the scanning tool that is used by Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS), can detect computers that require the security updates that are documented in Microsoft security bulletin MS04-038. However, MBSA cannot provide SMS with the information that is required to download and deploy the appropriate MS04-038 security update packages for Internet Explorer 6 SP1 for Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 and Internet Explorer 6 SP1 for Microsoft Windows 2000 and Microsoft Windows XP.
