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 Microsoft Windows Update, Microsoft 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 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 May 9, 2006.

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

If you use MBSA 1.2.1 or MBSA 2.0 to detect security updates, you can detect most of the security updates that were released on May 9, 2006.

Note MBSA 1.2.1 contains an integrated version of the Office Detection Tool. The Office Detection Tool part of MBSA 1.2.1 is limited to local scans.
  • Security update 913433 (MS06-020)
    MBSA 1.2.1 does not support any part of this update. This security update is supported by using the May 2006 Enterprise Scan Tool.
For more information about how to obtain the Enterprise Scan Tool, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
894193 How to obtain and use the Enterprise Scan Tool

Environments that detect and that 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 to deploy security updates, you can detect most of the security updates that were released on May 9, 2006.
  • Security update 916803 (MS06-019)
    SUS does not support any 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 (ITMU)

If you use SMS 2.0 together with the Security Update Inventory Tool or SMS 2003 together with the Inventory Tool for Microsoft Updates to detect and to deploy security updates, you can detect and deploy all security updates that were released on May 9, 2006.

Some security updates may be fully detected by using SMS 2.0 together with the Security Update Inventory Tool only if you use the latest cumulative Extended Security Update Inventory Tool. To obtain this tool, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

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 May 10, 2006, at 11:00 A.M. (Pacific Time). To register, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/WebCastEventDetails.aspx?culture=en-US&EventID=1032294228&EventCategory=4
Q2: Is the Enterprise Scan Tool also cumulative as 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 the MBSA tool to determine whether these updates are required?

A3:
Yes, you can use MBSA 1.2.1 and MBSA 2.0 to fully detect the need for the following security updates that were released on May 9, 2006, except where noted in the following table.

913433 MS06-020 Flash See "Environments that detect security updates by using MBSA 1.2.1 or MBSA 2.0"

895660 Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) 2.0 is available

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:

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

A5: Yes. SMS helps detect and to deploy these security updates. When they are used together with the Software Updates Inventory Tool, SMS 2.0 and SMS 2003 use MBSA 1.2.1 technology for detection. Therefore, SMS 2.0 and SMS 2003 have limitations that resemble 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 and the Extended Security Update Inventory Tool are required for detection of all the security updates in Microsoft Windows and in 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

When they are used together with the Software Updates Inventory Tool, SMS 2.0 and SMS 2003 also 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 to deploy security updates. This tool uses technology from Microsoft Updates. For more information about the Inventory Tool for Microsoft Updates, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
