Hello again! This is Tami Gallupe (MSRC Release Manager) and I want to let you know that we just posted our August 2008 Bulletins. This month we released 11 bulletins, one new advisory and revised an existing advisory. We also revised four bulletins to update detection changes. Here is a brief overview of the bulletins and other content we released today.
You may notice that we removed one of the bulletins that we had mentioned in the “Advanced Notification Service” that we released last week. We did this prior to today’s bulletin release because of a last minute quality issue. Microsoft has heard from customers that the quality of updates is very important and, as part of the process at the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC), Microsoft tests these updates continuously until they are ready for distribution to customers through our regularly scheduled security bulletin release.
We also revised the following bulletins to update detection changes
· MS08-022 – major revision, added XP SP3 detection
· MS08-033 – major revision, added XP SP3 detection
· MS07-047 – major revision, update detection
· MS08-040 – minor revision, update detection
· Release Advisory 955179
· Revised Advisory 954960

And finally, I also want to highlight my favorite event of the release: the webcast that starts tomorrow (Wednesday, August 13th) at 11:00 AM PST. To me this is a wonderful event that gives us a chance to hear from you, to take your questions and answer them live, on the air.
