SUMMARY

As part of an ongoing commitment to provide detection tools and deployment recommendations for security updates, Microsoft is delivering this detection and deployment guidance for all updates that are released during a Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) release cycle. This guidance contains recommendations that are based on the types of scenarios that may exist in various Microsoft operating system environments. This guidance includes using tools such as Windows Update, Microsoft Update, Office Update, the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA), Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (Configuration Manager 2007), Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS), and the Extended Security Update Inventory Tool (ESUIT).

For more information about the programs that MBSA currently does not detect, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
895660  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/895660/ ) Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) 2.0 is available
If you installed a program that is listed in the "Affected software" section of a security bulletin that is mentioned in the related article, you may have to manually determine whether you must install the required security update. For more information about MBSA, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=21134 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=21134)
Q3: Can I use SMS or Configuration Manager 2007 to determine whether the updates are required?

A3:
Yes. SMS helps detect and deploy these security updates. SMS 2.0 together with SUIT and SMS 2003 together with SUIT use MBSA version 1.2.1 technology for detection. Therefore, SMS 2.0 together with SUIT and SMS 2003 together with SUIT have similar limitations to MBSA version 1.2.1. For more information about SMS, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=21158 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=21158)
SUIT together with ESUIT are required for detection of all the security updates on Microsoft Windows and on other affected Microsoft products. For more information about the limitations of SUIT, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
306460  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306460/ ) Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) returns note messages for some updates
SMS 2.0 together with SUIT and SMS 2003 together with SUIT also use the Microsoft Office Inventory Tool to detect the required security updates for Microsoft Office programs such as Microsoft Word.

SMS 2003 customers can also use ITMU to detect and to deploy security updates. ITMU uses technology from Microsoft Updates. For more information about ITMU, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sms/bb676783.aspx (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sms/bb676783.aspx)
Configuration Manager 2007 uses WSUS 3.0 for detection and deployment of these security updates. Therefore, anything that is supported by WSUS 3.0 is also supported by Configuration Manager 2007.
