SUMMARY

As part of an ongoing commitment to provide detection tools and deployment recommendations for security updates, Microsoft is delivering this detection and deployment guidance for all updates that are released during a Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) release cycle. This guidance contains recommendations that are based on the types of scenarios that may exist in various Microsoft operating system environments. This guidance includes the use of tools such as Windows Update, Office Update, Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA), the Office Detection Tool, Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS), the Extended Security Update Inventory Tool, and the Enterprise Update Scan Tool (EST). Currently, the guidance in this document does not apply to 64-bit systems. Microsoft plans to add this information in future releases of this guide.

INTRODUCTION

This article describes the detection and deployment guidance for the security release that is dated January 5 and January 10, 2006.

Frequently asked questions

Q1: What is Microsoft doing to provide guidance about how to deploy these updates?
A1:
Microsoft encourages system administrators to join the monthly technical webcast to learn more about security updates. The webcast for this security update airs on January 11, 2006 at 11:00 A.M. Pacific Time. To register, visit the following Microsoft Web site:http://msevents.microsoft.com/cui/WebCastEventDetails.aspx?EventID=1032287360&EventCategory=4&culture=en-US&CountryCode=USQ2: Is the Enterprise Update Scan Tool also cumulative, as the Extended Security Update Inventory Tool is for SMS?
A2:
No, the Enterprise Update Scan tool is not cumulative. There are no plans to make the Enterprise Update Scan tool cumulative.

Q3: Can I use the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) tool to determine whether these updates are required?
A3:
Yes, you can use MBSA 1.2.1 and 2.0 to fully detect the need for the following security updates that released on January 5 and January 10, 2006, except where noted:

For more information about the programs that MBSA currently does not detect , click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
306460 Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) returns note messages for some updates
895660 Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) 2.0 is available
If you install a program that is listed in the "Affected software" section of a security bulletin that is mentioned in the related article, you may have to manually determine whether you must install the required security update. For more information about MBSA, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/cc184924.aspx
Q4. Which security updates require that I use the Enterprise Update Scan Tool together with MBSA to identify vulnerable systems on my network?
A4:
There is no Enterprise Update Scan Tool for these packages. MBSA fully detects all released security updates.

Q5. Can I use Systems Management Server (SMS) to determine whether the updates are required?
A5:
Yes. SMS helps detect and deploy these security updates. SMS 2.0 and SMS 2003 with the Software Updates Inventory Tool use MBSA 1.2.1 technology for detection. Therefore, SMS 2.0 and SMS 2003 with the Software Updates Inventory Tool have limitations that are similar to the limitations of MBSA 1.2.1. For more information about SMS, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.microsoft.com/smserver/default.mspx
The Security Update Inventory Tool together with the Extended Security Update Inventory Tool is required for detection of all the security updates on Microsoft Windows and on other affected Microsoft products. For more information about the limitations of the Security Update Inventory Tool, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
306460 Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) returns note messages for some updates
SMS 2.0 and SMS 2003 with the Software Updates Inventory Tool also use the Microsoft Office Inventory Tool to detect the required security updates for Microsoft Office programs such as Microsoft Word.

SMS 2003 customers can also use the Inventory Tool for Microsoft Updates (ITMU) to detect and deploy security updates. ITMU uses the technology in Microsoft Updates. For more information about ITMU, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
