Windows 7: Microsoft: Furthering our commitment to security updates

Microsoft: Furthering our commitment to security updates

Microsoft is committed to delivering comprehensive security updates to our customers.

Information about the security updates we release are currently made available on the Microsoft Security Bulletin website. However, our customers have asked for better access to update information, as well as easier ways to customize their view to serve a diverse set of needs.

This month we released a preview of our new single destination for security vulnerability information, the Security Updates Guide. Instead of publishing bulletins to describe related vulnerabilities, the new portal lets our customers view and search security vulnerability information in a single online database.

Using the new portal you can:
  • Sort and filter security vulnerability and update content, for example, by CVE, KB number, product, or release date.
  • Filter out products that donít apply to you, and drill down to more detailed security update information for products that do.
  • Leverage a new RESTful API to obtain Microsoft security update information. This eliminates the need for you to employ outdated methods like screen-scraping of security bulletin web pages to assemble working databases of necessary and actionable information.
Security update information will be published as bulletins and on the Security Updates Guide until January 2017. After the January 2017 Update Tuesday release, we will only publish update information to the Security Updates Guide.

You can send feedback on the new portal to
