Microsoft Security Bulletin Advance Notification for March 2012
Issued: March 8, 2012
********************************************************************

This is an advance notification of security bulletins that
Microsoft is intending to release on March 13, 2012.

The full version of the Microsoft Security Bulletin Advance
Notification for March 2012 can be found at
http://technet.microsoft.com/security/bulletin/ms12-mar.

This bulletin advance notification will be replaced with the 
March bulletin summary on March 13, 2012. For more
information about the bulletin advance notification service, see
http://technet.microsoft.com/security/bulletin/advance.

To receive automatic notifications whenever Microsoft Security
Bulletins are issued, subscribe to Microsoft Technical Security
Notifications on
http://technet.microsoft.com/security/dd252948.aspx.

Microsoft will host a webcast to address customer questions on
these bulletins on March 14, 2012, at 11:00 AM Pacific Time 
(US & Canada). Register for the Security Bulletin Webcast at 
http://technet.microsoft.com/security/bulletin.

Microsoft also provides information to help customers prioritize
monthly security updates with any non-security, high-priority
updates that are being released on the same day as the monthly
security updates. Please see the section, Other Information.

This advance notification provides a number as the
bulletin identifier, because the official Microsoft Security
Bulletin numbers are not issued until release. The bulletin summary
that replaces this advance notification will have the proper
Microsoft Security Bulletin numbers (in the MSyy-xxx format) as the
bulletin identifier. The security bulletins for this month are as
follows, in order of severity:

Microsoft Active Protections Program (MAPP)
===========================================
To improve security protections for customers, Microsoft provides
vulnerability information to major security software providers in
advance of each monthly security update release. Security software
providers can then use this vulnerability information to provide
updated protections to customers via their security software or
devices, such as antivirus, network-based intrusion detection
systems, or host-based intrusion prevention systems. To determine
whether active protections are available from security software
providers, please visit the active protections websites provided by
program partners, listed at
http://www.microsoft.com/security/msrc/collaboration/mapp.aspx.

Recognize and avoid fraudulent email to Microsoft customers:
=============================================================
If you receive an email message that claims to be distributing
a Microsoft security update, it is a hoax that may contain
malware or pointers to malicious websites. Microsoft does
not distribute security updates via email.

The Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) uses PGP to digitally
sign all security notifications. However, PGP is not required for
reading security notifications, reading security bulletins, or
installing security updates. You can obtain the MSRC public PGP key 
at
https://technet.microsoft.com/security/bulletin/pgp.

Microsoft Security Bulletins are issued, subscribe to Microsoft
