RE: Re: Microsoft Security, baby steps ?

Come on Microsoft. How about putting together a single file 
that contains all the "critical" security updates since the 
last service pack for a given OS? 

How about every time they release a fix, they also release a rollup, so you
can either download the individual fix, or all the fixes up to that point?

Who knows, perhaps then we'd get sensible 
results out of MBSA?

Is it just me, or does the idea of having to have the Remote Registry
Service running to use the MBSA really annoy everyone else as well?

I use kickstart and the genhdlist package with Red Hat to 
ensure that any installed system has all the updates 
installed on the first boot after installation. Why then does 
Windows have to lag so far behind?

A combination of SMS & SUS can provide almost the same thing, but having to
put SMS in isn't really desirable.
