September’s security update release cycle

Well it’s Tuesday, and it been another busy day.  That might be surprising since we didn’t release any new security updates, but there’s always a lot going on in the MSRC. 

While the decision to not ship the security update was a difficult one, it was encouraging to see that several customers, security researchers and even the press felt it was the right decision.  We strive to release high-quality updates and do our best to avoid releasing a problematic update.  So, while there is no security bulletin scheduled today, there is a new version of the Malicious Software Removal tool as well as a revised version of the Windows 2000 SP4 Update Rollup.  Also, even though it is busy, things are actually a little more quiet around here than usual.  That’s probably because a lot of folks are at PDC. (Craig is down there, which is why no one got to hear about his breakfast choice today.) Hopefully we’ll get to hear from them on the blog soon as well.
