January 2007 Advance Notification


Happy New Year everyone.

This is Christopher Budd and it’s the Thursday before the Second Tuesday of January 2007. As we do each month at this time, we’ve posted our Advance Notification for the upcoming security bulletin release.

Next Tuesday, on January 9, 2007 at approximately 10:00 am PT we are slated to release:

  • One Microsoft Security Bulletin affecting Microsoft Windows. The highest Maximum Severity rating for this is Critical. This update will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer and the Enterprise Scan Tool. This update will require a restart.

  • Three Microsoft Security Bulletins affecting Microsoft Office. The highest Maximum Severity rating for these is Critical. These updates will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer. These updates may require a restart.

We will also be making our regular monthly update to the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool.

Finally, I hope you’ll be able to join us for this months’ security bulletin webcast. It will be on Wednesday, January 10, 2007 at 11:00 am PT. You can register for it here:
