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 October 11, 2006 at 11:00 A.M. (Pacific Time). To register, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/EventDetail.aspx?culture=en-US&EventID=1032308775&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 Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) tool 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 October 10, 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 the MBSA, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

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 together with the Software Updates Inventory Tool use MBSA 1.2.1 technology for detection. Therefore, SMS 2.0 and SMS 2003 together 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 with the Software Updates Inventory Tool 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 also use the Inventory Tool for Microsoft Updates to detect and deploy security updates. ITMU uses technology from Microsoft Updates. For more information about ITMU, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
