It seems Microsoft was not very amused at my posting of their
advisory to the list the other day. As the copyright holders
of the work they have told me in no uncertain terms that I do
not have their permission to redistribute a text version of
their web page bulletins via the mailing list or the
securityfocus.com web site, and that doing so would be considered
an act of copyright violation.

There you have it. So until Microsoft changes their policy or
changes their email bulletins back to the old format you won't
see them on the list. Of curse the vulnerabilities and their
information will continue to be announced.

They did state that they are continuing to accept feedback from
customers about their new email format. So if you liked better
the old one you may wish to let them know. You can send your
comments to:
