Microsoft kicks security bulletins to the curb in favor of security update guide
11 April 2017, 9:33 pm

Forget about security bulletins; Microsoft is so done with them. Now, it’s all about the Security Update Guide – something Microsoft claimed customers wanted back in November 2016. Bulletins were supposed to bite the dust starting in January 2017, but it appears as if they did starting in April 2017. This new era for patching Microsoft is great, if you really like clicking again and again. If not, I suppose that is too bad, so sad.

The release notes are slightly more informative than the Microsoft Security Response Center post about the April patches. The latter simply stated, “Today we released security updates to provide additional protections against malicious attackers.” Microsoft recommends turning on automatic updates, but probably not to stop the upcoming migraine for the click-fest you will have to endure to find out about the security updates.
