INTRODUCTION

This article describes the detection and deployment guidance for the security release that is dated February 14, 2006.

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 information about the use of the following tools:
  • Microsoft Windows Update
  • Microsoft Office Update
  • Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA)
  • The Office Detection Tool
  • Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS)
  • The Extended Security Update Inventory Tool
  • The Enterprise Update Scan Tool
Currently, the guidance in this article does not apply to 64-bit systems. Microsoft is looking to add this information in future releases of this guidance.

MORE INFORMATION

Detection and deployment

Environments that detect and deploy security updates by using Windows Update, Microsoft Update, and Office Update

All the security updates that released on February 14, 2006 are available on the following Microsoft Web sites:
  • Windows Update
  • Microsoft Update
  • Office Update

Environments that detect security updates by using MBSA 1.2.1 or MBSA 2.0

If you use the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) version 1.2.1 or Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer version 2.0 to detect security updates, you can detect most of the security updates that released on February 14, 2006. Any exceptions are in the following list.

Note MBSA 1.2.1 contains an integrated version of the Office Detection Tool. The Office Detection Tool in MBSA 1.2.1 is limited to local scans only.
  • Security update 911565 (security bulletin MS06-005)
    This update affects the following products:
    • Microsoft Windows Media Player 7.1
    • Windows Media Player 8.0
    • Windows Media Player 9.0
    • Windows Media Player 10.0
    Note MBSA 1.2.1 does not detect the need for the Windows Media Player 10 part of the security update. The February 2006 version of the Enterprise Update Scan Tool provides detection for Windows Media Player 10.0. MBSA 2.0 can detect the Windows Media Player 10.0 part of this security update.
  • Security updates 905645 and 901190 (security bulletin MS06-009)
    Security update 905645 affects the following Office 2003 components:
    • Microsoft Office 2003 Service Pack 1 and Service Pack 2
    • Microsoft Office 2003 Multilingual User Interface Packs
    • Microsoft Office Visio 2003 Multilingual User Interface Packs
    • Microsoft Office Project 2003 Multilingual User Interface Packs
    • Microsoft Office 2003 Proofing Tools
    • Microsoft Office Visio 2003
    • Microsoft Office OneNote 2003
    • Microsoft Office Project 2003
    Security update 901190 affects the following products:
    • Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1)
    • Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)
    • Microsoft Windows Server 2003
    • Windows Server 2003 SP1
    Note When you use MBSA 1.2.1, you can only detect security update 905645 by using a local scan. This is because the Office instances of the vulnerability are only detectable by the Office Detection Tool when you use MBSA 1.2.1. When you use MBSA 1.2.1, the Windows instances of the vulnerability are detectable by using remote scans or local scans. MBSA 2.0 can detect this security update by using local scans or remote scans because MBSA 2.0 does not rely on the Office Detection Tool.
  • Security update 828040
    This is an update for Microsoft PowerPoint 2000. MBSA 2.0 does not support the Office 2000 product suite. MBSA 1.2.1 provides detection for this security update by using a local scan that only uses the Office Detection Tool.

Environments that detect and deploy security updates by using Software Update Services or Windows Server Update Services

If you use Software Update Services (SUS) or Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) to detect and deploy security updates, you can detect most security updates that released on February 14, 2006. SUS and WSUS do not detect or partially detect the following updates:
  • Security updates 905645 and 901190 (security bulletin MS06-009)
    See the previous section for a list of components and products that are affected by these security updates.

    SUS 1.0 does not support detection for security update 905645. 905645 is for Office 2003, and SUS does not support any Office product suites. WSUS supports security update 905645.

    SUS 1.0 and WSUS both support security update 901190.
  • Security update 828040
    This update is an update for PowerPoint 2000. SUS 1.0 does not support any Office product suites. WSUS does not support the Office 2000 product suite.

Environments that detect and deploy security updates by using SMS 2.0 together with the Security Update Inventory Tool or SMS 2003 together with the Inventory Tool for Microsoft Updates

You can detect and deploy all security updates that were released on February 14, 2006 by using either of the following products:
  • SMS 2.0 together with the Security Update Inventory Tool and the latest cumulative Extended Security Update Inventory Tool.
  • SMS 2003 together with the Inventory Tool for Microsoft Updates
To obtain the latest cumulative Extended Security Update Inventory Tool, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

Q5: Can I use SMS to determine whether the updates are required?

A5:
Yes. SMS helps detect and deploy these security updates. Together with the Security Update Inventory Tool, SMS 2.0 and SMS 2003 use MBSA 1.2.1 technology for detection. Therefore, SMS 2.0 and SMS 2003 have similar limitations to MBSA 1.2.1. For more information about SMS, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.microsoft.com/smserver/default.mspx
To use SMS to detect all the security updates in Microsoft Windows and in other affected Microsoft products, both the Security Update Inventory Tool and the Extended Security Update Inventory Tool are required. 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 use both the Security Update Inventory Tool and the Microsoft Office Inventory Tool to detect the required security updates for Microsoft Office programs such as Microsoft Word.

Alternatively, SMS 2003 customers can use the Inventory Tool for Microsoft Updates to detect and deploy security updates. The Inventory Tool for Microsoft Updates uses technology from Microsoft Updates. For more information, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sms/bb676783.aspx
