Security patches for these bulletins are not downloaded by manageSoft SPM, despite the bulletin having moved from the New/Updated Patches node to the In Progress node.
When using ManageSoft Security Patch Management (SPM) to download security patches associated with MS05-004 or MS05-005 or MS05-006, the following behaviors occur:
- The downloaded bulletin moves from the New/Updated Patches node to the In Progress node in the ManageSoft SPM console
- No security patch executable is downloaded to the <Warehouse>\Repository\SecurityPatch\downloads directory on the administration server (warehouse).
- No security patch packages are created when a patch package is generated for the bulletins detailed above.
ManageSoft SPM uses a file supplied by Microsoft called mssecure.xml. This file details information about a security bulletin, the security patches that form part of the bulletin, the affected product for which the security patch needs to be installed, and the URL from which the security patch can be downloaded.
The update of mssecure.xml for February 2005 contains security bulletin information for MS05-004, MS05-005, and MS05-006, but there is no security patch information for these bulletins. When an attempt is made to download the security patches for these bulletins, ManageSoft SPM moves the bulletin to the In Progress node, as it has deemed to have successfully downloaded the security patches even though there is no security patch data for the bulletins.
MS05-004 fixes a vulnerability in Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 and 1.1. This product is currently not supported by MBSA and therefore needs to be downloaded, packaged and deployed through standard ManageSoft processes (not through SPM). Please see the Microsoft Security Bulletin MS05-004 for further details.
To prevent patches that are not supported by MBSA from appearing in the security patch management New/Updated Patch node, you can configure the Application Preferences section in ManageSoft and uncheck the 'Other Applications' check box.
MS05-005 fixes a vulnerability in Microsoft Office XP. This product is not supported by MBSA but is supported by the Office Update tool that comes with MBSA 1.2.1.

- OF_MSO10 (KB873352)
