 And for the MSBA thing, If you use it in a hardened
OS with SCRIPTING and other lot of stuffz disabled it
doesn't function at all!!!
 
MSBA was intended to harden security!!! But if you
INSTALL it in a PROPERLY HARDENED OS, it doesn't
WORK!!! NEITHER THE CMD LINE, NOR THE GUI!?

Also, http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com

And don't forget, many viruses are NOT vuln-related
but rather user
(i.e. mass mailers requiring user action and no
vuln).
