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 July 12, 2006 at 11:00 A.M Pacific Time. To register, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/WebCastEventDetails.aspx?EventID=1032297371
Q2: Is the Enterprise Scan Tool (EST) also cumulative as the Extended Security Update Inventory Tool is for SMS?

A2: No, EST is not cumulative. There are no plans to make it cumulative.

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

A3: Yes, you can use the MBSA 1.2.1 and 2.0 to fully detect the need for the following security updates that released on July 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 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 EST together with MBSA to identify vulnerable systems on my network?

KB NumberBulletin IDComponent
917283MS06-033ASP.NET
Q5: Can I use SMS to determine whether the updates are required?

A5: Yes. SMS helps detect and deploy these security updates. Both SMS 2.0 and SMS 2003 with SUIT use MBSA 1.2.1 technology for detection. Therefore, SMS 2.0 and SMS 2003 with SUIT 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
SUIT 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 with SUIT 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 also use ITMU to detect and deploy security updates. This tool uses technology from Microsoft Updates. For more information about ITMU, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
