Microsoft puts an end to ‘Patch Tuesday’ email alerts

Quote:
Microsoft's 'Patch Tuesday' is a big event for those who manage networks for a living; the updates are meant to patch security flaws and fix bugs in the company's many software platforms. While Microsoft does update its various blogs about the patches, one service they did offer was to send out an email alerting those who signed up about the patches.

Unfortunately, thanks to a change in government regulation, that practice will be halted on July 1st. Below, you can find a copy of the email that Microsoft began sending out today that let readers know that the emails would be coming to a stop next week.

Microsoft to resume email security notifications

That's been updated since then.

Microsoft has effectively retracted a policy announcement from last Friday that they would no longer send emails to notify of certain security problems and events. After further consideration, they will continue issuing the emails.

Seemed to me it looked like it was only in Canada due to new legislation.
