    Additional Note:

     

     

                    MS08-029 is a detect only vulnerability definition. The reason for this is that Microsoft is providing these updates through the update capabiltiies of the affected products and not in a downloadable patch. In addition, we have experienced some technical difficulties in detecting the following products:

     

    • Standalone System Sweeper located in Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset 6.0

    • Microsoft Forefront Security for Exchange Server

    • Microsoft Forefront Security for SharePoint

    • Microsoft Antigen for Exchange
