Microsoft stop security notification emails

Since July 1st, Microsoft have suspended certain email security notifications, meaning that Windows system administrators and security professionals may need to adapt their monthly "Patch Tuesday" routine in order to keep up with the latest security updates.

While the Redmond based software company offers a customisable web based security dashboard, myBulletins, it's hard to beat the convenience of having bulletin emails delivered straight to your inbox.

Microsoft maintain various technical security notification feeds, amongst which are the monthly Microsoft Security Bulletins (pictured above), and the Microsoft Security Response Center blog feed (below) which provides an excellent monthly summary including active attack status, exploitability rating and potential impact for each patch, allowing you to prioritise your deployment accordingly.
