Microsoft to Cease Security Bulletins Next Month

Category: General News
Posted: 04:47PM

Microsoft has been issuing security bulletins detailing patches and vulnerabilities for 20 years, a practice the company plans to end next month. Users won't be left entirely out in the cold as the company is merely switching its procedure to a searchable database that will provide the same information as the security bulletins. A preview of the database has been operational since November, when the decision to move away from bulletins was first announced. Microsoft described the motivation to make the switch, stating "Our customers have asked for better access to update information, as well as easier ways to customize their view to serve a diverse set of needs."
