Get advance notice about September security updates

Today the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) posted details about the September security updates. On Tuesday, September 11 at approximately 10 AM Pacific Time Microsoft will release 2 bulletins.

The MSRC also posted information about important changes to the Windows certificate requirements included in Security Advisory 2661254 (Update For Minimum Certificate Key Length), which will improve security across the Windows platform. 

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

  • I would like too receive advanced notice about September security updates and the following months to come.

    I already receive up-to-date Newsletters about security and others as well.

    I am very interested in security, not just for my computer, people that I meet and talk to. Thank-you for all your support and notifications throughout the year and all the hard work you do all year around.
