    Question Unanswered: Mystery 22GB .TMP file

    In general, patch management solutions use an approach very similar to inventory and deployment, although, obviously, implementation details vary. Inventory relies on an external database to establish what is considered to be a recommended patch level and provides criteria for validating whether a particular patch has been installed. Products from Microsoft and Shavlik Technologies (on which HFNetChk, MBSA, and SMS 2.0 Feature Pack are based), keep track of published patches on the Microsoft Web site using the same mechanism, based on an XML formatted file called mssecure.xml. This file, available centrally at predefined locations, serves as a template against which the status of updates on target systems is compared. mssecure.xml can be obtained directly or via its compressed, digitally signed version, mssecure.cab. Both files can be downloaded from:

    the Microsoft Web site at https://www.microsoft.com/technet/se...h/mssecure.xml and http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...s/mssecure.cab
    the Shavlik.com Web site at https://xml.shavlik.com/mssecure.xml and http://xml.shavlik.com/mssecure.cab
