If you read the February Advance Notification published on Thursday last week, you may have noticed that the February release contains one less bulletin than was projected. We continue test and work on the updates and bulletins right up until they are published. If we find an issue with a planned bulletin, in order to make sure that we protect customers with the highest possible quality of update and detection, we may need to pull a bulletin out if it in any way falls short of this mark. If this happens in the few days before release, this may cause a delta between the Advance Notification, and what we actually release. Of course any such bulletin will be made right, and put back into the release process as quickly as possible.
The February 2008 release contains 11 new bulletins, 6 of which have maximum severities of “Critical”.
