Advanced Notification for the September 2011 Bulletin Release

Hello everyone,

As we do each month, we’re providing advanced notification on the release of five Important security bulletins, addressing 15 vulnerabilities, to help protect customers using Microsoft Windows and Office. As usual, the bulletin release is scheduled for the second Tuesday of the month, September 13, at approximately 10 a.m. PDT.

Additionally, I wanted to let you know that in order to facilitate localization, Microsoft has enhanced its URL pattern for all security bulletins. Now all TechNet pages, including security bulletins, advisories and MSVR advisories, use new URLs.

The new URL pattern for bulletins will be:

If available, the appropriate localized version of a page will render automatically, based on the local machine’s language settings. Microsoft has also started redirecting access to pages with the old URL pattern to the new pages with the new URL pattern.

For all the latest information, you can also follow the MSRC team on Twitter at @MSFTSecResponse.
