Microsoft kills off security bulletins after several stays
Microsoft this week retired the security bulletins that for decades have described each month’s slate of vulnerabilities and accompanying patches for customers — especially administrators responsible for companies’ IT operations.
One patch expert reported on the change for his team. “It was like trying to relearn how to walk, run and ride a bike, all at the same time,” said Chris Goettl, product manager with patch management vendor Ivanti.
The move to a bulletin-less Patch Tuesday brought an end to months of Microsoft talk about killing the bulletins that included an aborted attempt to toss them.
