SUMMARY

As part of an ongoing commitment to provide detection tools and deployment recommendations for security updates, Microsoft delivers 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 occur in various Microsoft operating system environments. This guidance includes the use of tools such as Windows Update, Office Update, the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA), the Office Detection Tool, Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS), the Extended Security Update Inventory Tool, and the Enterprise Scan Tool (EST). Currently, the guidance in this document does not apply to 64-bit systems. Microsoft is looking to add this information in future releases of this guide.

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

If you use 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 April 11, 2006. For detailed information, see the following list.

Note MBSA version 1.2.1 contains an integrated version of the Office Detection Tool (ODT).

Note The Office Detection Tool part of MBSA 1.2.1 performs local scans only.
  • Security update 917627 (security bulletin MS06-017)
    MBSA 1.2.1 supports the SharePoint Team Services 2002 part of this security update by using the integrated version of the ODT for local scans only. MBSA 1.2.1 and MBSA 2.0 do not support the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions part of this security update. The FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions part of this security update is supported by using the April 2006 Enterprise Scan Tool.
  • Security update 911567 (security bulletin MS06-016)
    MBSA 1.2.1 does not support Microsoft Outlook Express. This security update is supported by using the April 2006 Enterprise Scan Tool.
  • Security update 911562 (security bulletin MS06-014)
    MBSA 1.2.1 is not able to detect whether you need this security update on computers that are running Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows 2000 SP4. The Windows XP SP1 and Windows 2000 SP4 parts of this security update are supported by using the April 2006 Enterprise Scan Tool. MBSA 1.2.1 supports this security update for all other affected products.

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

If you use Software Update Services (SUS) or Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) to detect and to deploy security updates, you can detect most of the security updates that released on April 11, 2006. SUS does not support any part of security update 917627 (security bulletin MS06-017). WSUS does not support the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions part of this security update.

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

If you use Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2.0 together with the Security Update Inventory Tool (SUIT), or you use SMS 2003 together with the Inventory Tool for Microsoft Updates (ITMU), to detect and to deploy security updates, you can detect and deploy all security updates that were released on April 11, 2006. Some security updates may be fully detected only by using SMS 2.0 with the SUIT if you use the latest cumulative Extended Security Update Inventory Tool. To obtain this tool, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=2C93DA1D-48A0-4E5C-991F-87E08954F61B&displaylang=en
SMS with ITMU does not support the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions part of security update 917627 (security bulletin MS06-017).

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 each security update usually airs at 11:00 A.M. Pacific Time on the day after the security release. To find and register for a security update webcast, visit the following Microsoft Events Web site:
http://msevents.microsoft.com/cui/default.aspx?culture=en-US
Q2. Is the Enterprise Update Scan Tool cumulative like the Extended Security Update Inventory Tool is for SMS?

A2: No, the Enterprise Scan Tool is not cumulative. There are no plans to make the Enterprise Scan Tool cumulative.

Q3: Can I use MBSA to determine whether these updates are required?

A3: Yes. You can use MBSA 1.2.1 and MBSA 2.0 to fully detect whether you need the following security updates. These updates were released on April 11, 2006, except where noted.

If you installed a program that is listed in the "Affected software" section of a security bulletin that is mentioned in a 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 Scan Tool together with MBSA to identify vulnerable systems on my network?

A4: For information about which security updates require that you use the Enterprise Scan Tool together with MBSA to identify vulnerable systems on the network, see the following table.

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 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
The Security Update Inventory Tool together with the Extended Security Update Inventory Tool are 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 together with the Software Updates Inventory Tool use 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. ITMU uses technology that Microsoft Updates uses. For more information about ITMU, visit the following Web site:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sms/bb676783.aspx
