Summary of detection and deployment guidance

The following table summarizes the detection and deployment guidance for each new security update.

Note To simplify this table, items that were listed under the "general exceptions" heading for each detection and deployment technology are not included.

For example, the SMS SUS Feature Pack column in this table may include a "Yes." However, the security bulletin lists a Windows Vista component as affected. Previously, we would have stated in the table that the SMS SUS Feature Pack partly supported the deployment of the security update because the SMS SUS Feature Pack does not support Windows Vista components. Currently, we no longer account for that specific exception in the table because the exception is always listed as a general exception.

Frequently asked questions

What is Microsoft doing to provide guidance about how to deploy these updates?

We encourage system administrators to join the monthly technical Webcast to learn more about security updates. The Webcast for this security update airs on July 9, 2008 at 11:00 A.M. (Pacific Time). To register, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/EventDetail.aspx?EventID=1032374629 (http://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/EventDetail.aspx?EventID=1032374629)
What other information should I know about MBSA?

For more information about the programs that MBSA currently supports, visit the following Microsoft TechNet Web page:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/cc184923.aspx (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/cc184923.aspx)
Can I use SMS or System Center Configuration Manager to determine whether the updates are required?

Yes. SMS helps detect and deploy these security updates. SMS 2.0 together with the SUS Feature Pack and SMS 2003 together with SUSFP use MBSA version 1.2.1 technology for detection. Therefore, SMS 2.0 together with the SUS Feature Pack and SMS 2003 together with the SUS Feature Pack have limitations that resemble the limitations of 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)
The SUS Feature Pack together with the Extended Security Update Inventory Tool is required to detect all the security updates on Microsoft Windows and on other affected Microsoft products.

For more information about the limitations of the SUS Feature Pack, 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 the SUS Feature Pack and SMS 2003 together with the SUS Feature Pack 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 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)
System Center 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 System Center Configuration Manager 2007.
