Environments that detect and that deploy security updates by using Windows Update, Microsoft Update, and Office Update

Security updates that were released on November 14, 2006, are available on the following Web sites. The products that are supported by each Web site are also listed.

Note Not every security update is available on every Web site. Any exceptions are in the following list.

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

If you use Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) version 1.2.1 together with an integrated version of the Office Detection Tool (ODT) to detect security updates, or if you use MBSA version 2.0 to detect security updates, you can detect most of the security updates that were released on November 14, 2006. Any exceptions are in the following list.
  • 923789 (security bulletin MS06-069)
    MBSA 1.2.1 does not support any part of this security update. The November 14, 2006 Enterprise Scan Tool will detect whether you must have this update.
For more information about how to obtain the Enterprise Scan Tool (EST) , click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Notes
  • 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 versions of Windows or any Itanium-based versions of Windows.

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 security updates that released on November 14, 2006. Any exceptions are in the following list.
Note SUS 1.0 SP1 does not support any x64-based or Itanium-based versions of Windows.
  • 928088 (security bulletin MS06-071)
    SUS 1.0 SP1 will support this security update sometime in the future. This Microsoft Knowledge Base article will be updated when SUS 1.0 SP1 starts to support this update.

Environments that detect and deploy security updates by using Microsoft Systems Management Server (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), or if you use SMS 2003 together with the Inventory Tool for Microsoft Updates (ITMU) to detect and to deploy security updates, you can detect and deploy most security updates that were released on November 14, 2006. Any exceptions are in the following list.
  • 923789 (security bulletin MS06-054)
    SMS together with SUIT does not support any part of this security update. The Extended Security Update Inventory Tool (ESUIT) will detect whether you must have this update.
To obtain the Extended Security Update Inventory Tool, visit the following Microsoft Web site: Note SMS 2.0 does not support any x64-based versions of Windows or any Itanium-based versions of Windows.

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 SUIT have similar limitations to MBSA 1.2.1. For more information about SMS, visit the following Microsoft Web site: The Security Update Inventory Tool together with 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 use the Microsoft Office Inventory Tool to detect the required security updates for Microsoft Office programs . These programs include Microsoft Word.

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