SUMMARY

Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) deployment packages are available that include security update MS05-020. Security update MS05-020 applies to Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (SP1) when it is used with Microsoft Windows 2000 or with Microsoft Windows XP.

The SMS deployment package also includes a script that enables the SMS 2.0 Software Update Services (SUS) Feature Pack and the SMS 2003 Software Update feature to deploy the appropriate security update to Windows 2000-based and Windows XP-based computers. This script does not install the security update on Microsoft Windows NT 4.0-based computers. Security update MS05-14 is not compatible with Windows NT 4.0.

You can download the SMS deployment package from the Microsoft Download Center. You must download a language-specific version of the deployment package if you authorize security update MS05-020 for languages other than English, French, German, or Japanese. To use the SMS deployment package, specify the /q:a /r:n command-line options in the Distribute Software Updates Wizard.

SYMPTOMS

SMS uses the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) scanning tool. MBSA can detect computers that require the security update that is documented in Microsoft security bulletin MS05-020. However, MBSA cannot provide SMS with information about supported operating systems for this update. For example, MBSA indicates that this update is compatible with Windows NT 4.0, even though it is not. The SMS deployment package is designed to prevent installation of this incompatible update in Windows NT 4.0. If you install the update on Windows NT 4.0-based computers without using the SMS deployment package, installation failures will occur on the client computers.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, Microsoft has released an SMS deployment package to the Microsoft Download Center. The SMS deployment package includes the following items:
  • The IE6.0sp1-KB890923-SMS-Deploy-KB896162-x86-ENU.exe file.
  • A script that detects the operating system on SMS client computers and that prevents installation in Windows NT 4.0.
After security update MS05-020 is approved in the Distribute Software Updates Wizard, SMS will download the SMS deployment package instead of the specified security update that is documented in Microsoft security bulletin MS05-020.

Important If you authorize security update MS05-020 for languages other than English, French, German, or Japanese, you must manually download the SMS deployment package for the appropriate language. You must also manually download the SMS deployment packages for the appropriate languages if the following conditions are true:
  • You are using the English version of the security catalog.
  • You are scanning French, German, or Japanese client computers.

IE6.0sp1-KB890923-SMS-Deploy-KB896162-x86-ENU.exe/q:a /r:n

Frequently asked questions

Q1: What is the difference between the security update that is included in the SMS deployment package and the security update that is documented in Microsoft security bulletin MS05-020?

A1: There is no difference in the security update in the SMS deployment package and the security update that is documented in Microsoft security bulletin MS05-020.

Q2: Does the SMS deployment package support security update MS05-020 for other versions of Internet Explorer?

A2: No. The deployment package contains only a security update for Internet Explorer 6 SP1 when it is used with Windows 2000 or with Windows XP. Security update MS05-020 for other versions of Internet Explorer can be detected and deployed by using SMS. There is no requirement for a separate SMS deployment package.

Q3: I have Internet Explorer 6 SP1 running in a homogenous environment with only one type of operating system. For example, my SMS client computers only run Windows 2000. Must I use the SMS deployment package, or can I deploy the security update that is documented in Microsoft security bulletin MS05-020?

A3: You can use the SMS deployment package, or you can manually download and deploy the specific operating system update that is documented in security bulletin MS05-020.
