For information about the programs that the MBSA currently does not detect, click the following article numbers to view the article 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 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:
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=21134
Q4: Which security updates require that I use EST together with MBSA to determine which systems on my network are vulnerable?

A4: None of the security updates require that you use the EST together with 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 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
SUIT together with the ESUIT 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 SUIT, 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 SUIT also use the Microsoft Office Inventory Tool to detect security updates that are required for Microsoft Office programs such as Microsoft Word.

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 Web site:
