Q2: Is EST cumulative like ESUIT is for SMS?

A2: No, the Enterprise Scan tool is not cumulative. There are no plans to make EST 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, MBSA 2.0, and MBSA 2.0.1 to fully detect the need for the following security updates that released on February 13, 2007.

Q4: Which security updates require that I use the Enterprise Scan Tool together with the MBSA to determine which systems on my network are vulnerable?

A4: The following security updates require that you use the Enterprise Scan Tool together with the MBSA to make this determination.

Q5: Can I use 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 SUIT use MBSA 1.2.1 technology for detection. Therefore, SMS 2.0 and SMS 2003 together with the SUIT have similar limitations to 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 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 together with the Software Updates Inventory Tool uses 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. ITMU uses technology from Microsoft Updates. For more information about ITMU, visit the following Web site:
