Microsoft sends out a notification whenever there is material information that affects customers’ security. If security changes are required, Microsoft releases a security update which includes all of its supporting collateral such as the Security Update Guide and Knowledge Base article. Otherwise, Microsoft communicates via several methods (for example, a security advisory or a blog post) on the matter that affects customers’ security and provides guidance along the way.

Microsoft Technical Security Notification Services

Microsoft’s free monthly Security Notification Service provides links to security-related software updates and notification of re-released security updates. You can choose between basic and comprehensive formats. These notifications are written for IT professionals, contain in-depth technical information, and are digitally-signed with PGP.
