Submission + - A Makeover for Microsoft Patch Tuesday

An anonymous reader writes: Microsoft plans to implement a major change to the Patch Tuesday advance notice mechanism to provide more details ahead of the release of security bulletins. Instead of the current bare-bones note with the the affected platform and the highest possible severity rating, the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) will release a summary page (similar to this one) that gives more details on the actual products affected and the potential impact of the vulnerability. The security bulletins are also undergoing a layout/design makeover.
