Security Updates as .ISO Disk Images

Security Updates

I saw this on Barnaby’s blog and didn’t realize we were doing this now.  For the IT Pro who needs to update many machines with security updates, but isn’t using WSUS or simply enforcing/allowing automatic updates, we’re now making the monthly security updates available as a download-able .ISO file.  I think that’s pretty cool.

For example, the download to the January updates is available here.

“What’s an .ISO file?”

An ISO file is essentially a disk image.  You can take that image and quickly burn it to a CD using CD Burner software.  (Any worthwhile CD burning software includes this capability.  I use Roxio, but there are others too.)
