New capability from Microsoft. See all of the security bulletins that affect a particular OS or software package, based on the package name and currently applied service pack. When I checked it this morning, Windows NT Workstation with Service Pack 6a showed 33 issues from August 99 to date. The web page,Microsoft TechNet Security - Security Bulletin Search, will allow you to choose any Microsoft OS or software and then choose the service pack you have loaded. When you hit Go, you're presented with all of the security bulletins you should probably review for action. Bravo, Microsoft. I wish all vendors had this capability. (Some already do, but not enough).
