MS Offering Monthly Security Updates on CD

Microsoft is offering a new option for businesses looking to deploy multiple patches at once without using Windows Update or SUS: CD images. The company will issue a CD download once a month containing all security and high-priority non-security updates for Windows.

"This isn't intended for end users. It doesn't have any automated version detection or any comprehensive installation mechanism," explained Craig Gehre from the Microsoft Security Response Center. "Instead, it's really intended to make life easier for folks who download and manage multiple updates. For example, MS06-002 has 125 separate packages for all languages and versions."
