Today the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) posted details about the July security updates. On Tuesday, July 10 at approximately 10 AM Pacific Time Microsoft will release 9 bulletins.

The easiest way to get the updates when they're available is to turn on Windows automatic updating. For more information about how this works, see Understanding Windows automatic updating.

The Microsoft Security Bulletin Advance Notification Service offers details about security updates approximately three business days before they are released. We do this to allow customers (especially IT professionals) to plan for effective deployment of security updates.

Advanced Notification includes information about:

  • The number of new security updates being released
  • The software affected
  • Severity levels of vulnerabilities
  • Information about any detection tools relevant to the updates

  • there is a note coming up on my security box every few seconds saying

    "Detected threats are being cleaned"  No action needed.  It has been doing this for the past three days!  I need to get it stopped!  It is driving me crazy, blocking info, etc.  How can I make it stop!??!?!?!?

  • I have received emails requesting credit card information and I wish to be certain this is not some sort of fraud.  It has happened to me once in the past nine months using a very real appearing Microsoft format.  To satisfy my hesitancy please sent a letter or email using my correct name, address, telephone number, type of credit card, and last four digits of the credit card number. When I am satisfied that this not another fraud I will msil you the information requested.  "Msihailo Ilic"

  • Is there detection or fix for the DNS malware software scheduled to be effective on July 9th?  is there a quick fix for our end user computers?

  • Please advise to whom I may communicate with to unblock an access my hotmail.com account.  When I try to go to my hotmail email I get a page that says "Your Account Has Been Blocked"

    And when I click "Continue", a page comes up that asks "How do I want to receive the code?"  But the email address  (w1****@hotmail.com) is incorrect and when I try to correct it, the page goes to "This website has expired"  !!!?

    Everytime I try get to a Windows Live site, they ask for the same thing.

    A check of my computer diagnostics diagnostcs reveals that I am successfully conected to

    Microsoft.com

    I check and utilize  my hotmail email everyday and have now been without it since Monday, July 9).  I am afraid the new emails are piling up!  Also, I cannot afford to lose the folders, saved emails, irreplaceable info in my saved emails.  PLEASE HELP!

    I have been a hotmail user for the three years and NEVER had a problem.

    Thank you for your prompt response.
