Microsoft Security Bulletin Release for November, 2016

As this is the second Tuesday of the month, there will be one  security monthly rollup for Windows 7 and 8.1 as well as Server 2008 and 2012.  The details of the updates included are listed below.

Another change available this month is a preview of the new Security Updates Guide. Instead of publishing bulletins to describe related vulnerabilities, the "Security Updates Guide" includes the ability to view and search security vulnerability information in a single online database.  After the January 2017 Update Tuesday release, bulletins will be eliminated and the information will only be available from the new Security Updates Guide.

The guide, described as a "portal" by the MSRC Team in Furthering our commitment to security updates, includes the following features:
  • Sort and filter security vulnerability and update content, for example, by CVE, KB number, product, or release date.
  • Filter out products that don’t 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 This eliminates the need for you to employ outdated methods like screen-scraping of security bulletin web pages to assemble working databases of necessary and actionable information.

      Well done! If be the case, non-admin account still seems to be the brat choice.
