Forefront TMG Security Patches RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good afternoon,


    What is the Microsoft strategy for publishing critical security patches for Forefront TMG? Is this monthly, quarterly or as and when?

  • They will generally be as and when...

    There are also functional updates in the form of Rollups that are released monthy/quarterly, normally these are a cumulative set of fixes that appear based upon customer CSS calls or internal MS feedback .

    If a critical patch is released for TMG, it should appear like any other MS patch and appear as part of the Patch Tuesday schedule. If really urgent, they could release it as an out of band update, but this is rare in my experience...
