March Patch Tuesday Magic

*Poof*! MS Patch Tuesday has disappeared. Microsoft's security response center blog has this to say:


This is Christopher Budd and it’s the Thursday before the Second Tuesday for March 2007.

As we do each month at this time, we’ve posted our Advance Notification for the upcoming security bulletin release.

For the month of March 2007, we will not be releasing any new security updates on March 13, 2007.

I'm flabbergasted. Perhaps they should look again at the SANS list of unpatched vulnerabilities or the eEye zero-day tracker. There are bugs that need fixing, folks, and hackers aren't taking the month off.

[Note: the original title of this post was mistakenly "April Patch Tuesday Magic."]
