Microsoft to replace security bulletins with searchable database

Microsoft is preparing to make some big changes to the way it reports details about new security updates for its software products. The "security bulletins" that most enthusiasts are familiar with will be replaced by a new "security updates guide" portal that should be easier to use.

On February 14, next month's Patch Tuesday, the software giant will abandon its old security bulletin system in favor of the new database. The new system promises to be more searchable than the old variant, while still providing the same level of details.

ComputerWorld has some more background information and reports not everyone is convinced that Microsoft will provide what's needed:
One patching expert crossed his fingers that Microsoft would make good on its pledge to publish the same information when it switches to a new online database. "I'm on the fence right now," said Chris Goettl, product manager with patch management vendor Shavlik, of the demise of bulletins. "We'll have to see [the database] in February before we know how well Microsoft has done [keeping its promise]."
A preview of the new security bulletin database can be viewed at this page.
