Todays updates and SUS 1.0

Hi everyone.  One tired Release Manager Craig here.  Today we released 2 new bulletins, details below.  But a quick note:  For the SUS 1.0 Admins, you may be experiencing some problems with all your previously approved updates are now showing up as “unapproved”.   This doesn’t impact the update level of your SUS clients, or the ability to deploy today’s updates with SUS 1.0. However, we have released a KB that has more details and workarounds. We are also hoping to make it a bit easier to fix by releasing a simple script soon.   So stay tuned.  Stepto or I will update this blog once we have that script out. But for WSUS, SMS, MBSA, Windows Update and Microsoft Update etc, everything appears to be smooth.  Here’s the details on the updates: 

  • MS05-054 addresses vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows and has a maximum severity rating of “Critical.”  
  • MS05-055 addresses a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows and has a maximum severity rating of “Important.”  

More information about the bulletins is available here.   

We also updated the technology to remove malicious software from users systems and made that available today as well. This month’s update removes Win32/IRCBot, Win32/Ryknos and WinNT/F4IRootkit and the tool can download at, or it’s also available via Automatic Updates.
