Environments that detect security updates by using MBSA version 1.2.1, MBSA version 2.0, or MBSA version 2.0.1

Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) version 1.2.1 contains an integrated version of the Office Detection Tool (ODT). If you use MBSA version 1.2.1, MBSA version 2.0, or MBSA version 2.0.1 to detect security updates, you can detect most of the security updates that released on January 9, 2007. Any exceptions are in the following list.
  • The Office Detection Tool part of MBSA 1.2.1 is limited to local scans only.
  • MBSA 1.2.1 does not support any x64-based or Itanium-based versions of Windows.
  • MBSA 2.0 and MBSA 2.01 do not support the Office 2000 part of security update 921585 (security bulletin MS07-001).
  • MBSA 2.0 and MBSA 2.01 do not support the Excel 2000 part of security update 927198 (security bulletin MS07-002).
  • MBSA 2.0 and MBSA 2.01 do not support the Outlook 2000 part of security update 925938 (security bulletin MS07-003).
  • MBSA 1.2.1 does not support any part of security update 929969 (security bulletin MS07-004). The Enterprise Scan Tool that releases on January 9, 2007 detects the need for this update except for Windows Internet Explorer 7.

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 released on January 9, 2007. Any exceptions are in the following list.

Note SUS 1.0 Service Pack 1 (SP1) does not support any x64-based or Itanium-based versions of Windows.
  • SUS does not support any part of security update 921585 (security bulletin MS07-001). WSUS does not support the Office 2000 part of this security update.
  • SUS does not support any part of security update 927198 (security bulletin MS07-002). WSUS does not support the Excel 2000 part of this security update.
  • SUS does not support any part of security update 925938 (security bulletin MS07-003). WSUS does not support the Outlook 2000 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 or SMS 2003 together with the Inventory Tool for Microsoft Updates


If you use SMS 2.0 together with the Security Update Inventory Tool (SUIT), SMS 2003 together with SUIT, or SMS 2003 together with the Inventory Tool for Microsoft Updates (ITMU) to detect and to deploy security updates, you can detect most of the security updates that released on January 9, 2007. Any exceptions are in the following list.

Note SMS 2.0 does not support any x64-based or Itanium-based versions of Windows.
  • SMS ITMU does not support the Office 2000 part of security update 921585 (security bulletin MS07-001).
  • SMS ITMU does not support the Excel 2000 part of security update 927198 (security bulletin MS07-002).
  • SMS ITMU does not support the Outlook 2000 part of security update 925938 (security bulletin MS07-003).
  • SMS together with the Security Update Inventory Tool does not support any part of security update 929969 (security bulletin MS07-004). The Extended Security Update Inventory Tool (ESUIT) will detect the need for this update.

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://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=21158
The Security Update Inventory Tool together with the Extended Security Update Inventory Tool are required for detection of 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
SMS 2.0 and SMS 2003 together with the Software Updates Inventory Tool also use the Microsoft Office Inventory Tool to detect security updates that are required for Microsoft Office programs such as Microsoft Word.

Alternatively, SMS 2003 customers can also use ITMU to detect and deploy security updates. ITMU uses technology from Microsoft Update. For more information about ITMU, visit the following Web site:
