Microsoft To Give Early Warning On Security

ChannelWeb Reports: "In a major shift in its security strategy, Microsoft says it plans to give security software makers an early look at technical details of security vulnerabilities before it releases updates on Patch Tuesday each month.

Microsoft announced the initiative, called the Microsoft Active Protections Program, Tuesday at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas.

In a Tuesday post to the newly established Microsoft Security Response Center blog, MSRC senior program manager Steve Adegbite explained that the goal of MAPP is to give security vendors more breathing room to produce signatures.

"Basically, in doing this, we're betting that cutting out the time to reverse engineer our security updates will give valuable time back to the defenders to focus on protection enhancement and faster delivery," Adegbite wrote."
