This release fully supports the following new bulletin:
MS04-040 (IE 6 SP1 Cumulative Update) - 889293.
This release also includes a number of minor bug fixes reported by customers
and PSS to resolve 'invalid checksum' and 'greater than expected' warnings.
It also includes two bug fixes that correctly provide a Note Message for
MS02-064 and MS03-008 on Windows 2000 SP4 that were previously set to detect
on Windows 2000 Gold, SP1, SP2 and SP3 platforms only.
Note messages do not indicate that the computer that you are scanning is not
secure. Note messages indicate that for technical reasons, MBSA cannot
determine whether the appropriate update or workaround was applied. You can
ignore note messages after you apply the update or after you evaluate your
computer to confirm it is secure based on the details provided in the
associated MSRC bulletin. See KB306460 for additional information regarding
Note Messages and products supported for MBSA detection.
ALSO NOTE: This announcement has been sent to the Microsoft.public.sms.tools
newsgroup, but in the future will be sent to the new
Microsoft.public.sms.software_updates newsgroup instead. No future MSSECURE
announcements will be sent to the sms.tools newsgroup.
