Microsoft Active Protections Program (MAPP)
===========================================
To improve security protections for customers, Microsoft provides 
vulnerability information to major security software providers in 
advance of each monthly security update release. Security software 
providers can then use this vulnerability information to provide 
updated protections to customers via their security software or 
devices, such as antivirus, network-based intrusion detection 
systems, or host-based intrusion prevention systems. To determine 
whether active protections are available from security software 
providers, please visit the active protections websites provided by 
program partners, listed at 
http://www.microsoft.com/security/msrc/collaboration/mapp.aspx.

Recognize and avoid fraudulent email to Microsoft customers:
=============================================================
If you receive an email message that claims to be distributing 
a Microsoft security update, it is a hoax that may contain 
malware or pointers to malicious websites. Microsoft does 
not distribute security updates via email.

The Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) uses PGP to digitally 
sign all security notifications. However, PGP is not required for 
reading security notifications, reading security bulletins, or 
installing security updates. You can obtain the MSRC public PGP key 
at 
https://technet.microsoft.com/security/bulletin/pgp.
