Here's hoping the bad guys can't reengineer the critical bulletin that's forthcoming in September as we need a break after MS05-039 in August

Title: September 2005 Microsoft Security Response Center Bulletin Notification

Issued: September 8, 2005

On 13 September 2005 Microsoft is planning to release:

Security Updates - One Microsoft Security Bulletin affecting Microsoft Windows. The highest Maximum Severity rating for this is critical. These updates may require a restart. These updates will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA).

Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - Microsoft will release an updated version of the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool on Windows Update, Microsoft Update, Windows Server Update Services and the Download Center.

Non-security High Priority updates on MU, WU, WSUS and SUS - Microsoft will release one NON-SECURITY High-Priority Updates for Windows on Microsoft Update (MU), Windows Update (WU), Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and Software Update Services (SUS).

Although we do not anticipate any changes, the number of bulletins, products affected, restart information and severities are subject to change until released.

Or maybe not.

Those bunglers at MS have withdrawn the security patch for additonal testing, and it may not be ready for the Tues update. See the article at ZDNet:

REVISED: September Advance Notification

Hey folks, Mike Reavey again. So, we’ve had a little change in plans for next week and wanted to make you all aware of it. This afternoon we revised the information in the Advance Notification to reflect a change for next week’s release. Microsoft will not be issuing any new security updates on September 13th as part of the September monthly bulletin release cycle. You can check out the revised information here.

So, why did we do this? Let me explain. Late in the testing process, we encountered a quality issue that we decided was significant enough that it required some more testing and development before releasing it. We have made a commitment to only release high quality updates that fix the issues at hand, and therefore we felt it was in the best interest of our customers to not release this update until it undergoes further testing.
