Microsoft Quietly Posts New MBSA
Security mavens will want to download the most recent version of Microsoft's security-analyzer tool, Microsoft Security Baseline Analyzer (MSBA) 1.2. The tool, which runs on Windows Server 2003, XP, and Windows 2000 systems, now includes support for Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 and all Microsoft BizTalk Server versions. MSBA 1.2 scans for common security misconfigurations on a long list of products (see the URL below). You can download MSBA 1.2 from the Microsoft Web site.
