Microsoft Knowledge Base Article Security Bulletin ID Component Detection Note
910729 MS06-054 Publisher See the MBSA section for more information
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 installed a program that is listed in the "Affected software" section of a security bulletin and 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 a network?

A4: There are no security updates this month that require EST for detection.

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

A5: Yes. SMS helps detect and deploy these security updates. When you use SMS 2.0 or SMS 2003 together with SUIT, you are using 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
You must use SUIT together with the Extended Security Update Inventory Tool to detect all the security updates for Microsoft Windows and for 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 you use SMS 2.0 or SMS 2003 together with SUIT, you are using 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 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:
