A busy Black Tuesday coming up.....
Bryan submitted today that Microsoft has sent out a pre-release notification of the goodies we can expect on Tuesday.  Taking directly from Bryan's message...
1 patch affecting "XML Core Services", rated "critical", will require a reboot

5 patches affecting Windows, maximum rating "critical", some of these will require a reboot

New "Malicious Software Removal Tool"

2 additional "non-security high-priority updates" will be released, but only on Microsoft Update and WSUS
Microsoft has stated here that they "will continue to support Software Update Services (SUS) 1.0 until December 6, 2006. Microsoft will no longer support SUS 1.0 after this date."  That means this is the last chance to finish testing WSUS for use on the production networks.

Thank you Bryan for the great information
