Microsoft Security Bulletin Advance Notification for April 2009

Posted by bink on April 10 2009, 5:23 AM. Posted in Security.

As part of this month’s security bulletin release process, we will issue eight security bulletins – five rated ‘Critical,’ two rated ‘Important,’ and one rated ‘Moderate.’ These bulletins address vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Excel, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft ISA Server. Depending on the bulletin, a restart may be required. The updates will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer.

As we do each month, the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool will be updated.

We are also planning to release high-priority, non-security updates on Windows Update and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) as well as high-priority, non-security updates on Microsoft Update and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS). For additional information, please see the “Other Information” section of the Advanced Notification.

As always, we’ll be holding the April edition of the monthly security bulletin webcast on Wednesday, April 15, 2009 at 11 a.m., Pacific Daylight Time.  We will review this month’s release and take your questions live on-air with answers from our panel of experts. As a friendly reminder, if you can’t make the live webcast, you can listen to it on-demand, as well at the same URL: Furthermore, we’ll also be posting the text of the questions and answers as well as a video synopsis on this page.
