Microsoft Security Advisories



Microsoft recently has started a pilot program of issuing Microsoft Security Advisories, which aims to provide guidance and information about security-related software changes or software updates. This is not the same as the Security Bulletin which published on a monthly basis. The security advisories aim to provide timely information which may release within one business day when Microsoft is notified of an issue.


For those concern on the security of Microsoft products, this is another place you should not miss.
