    Microsoft Pushes Non-Security Security Update



    What do you want first, the bad news or the good? Let's start with the bad: Microsoft Corp. last night released a new security advisory, the second this week. The good news is that it doesn't actually deal with a known exploit, worm, or virus. In other words, it doesn't technically deal with security at all. Instead, last night's advisory concerns the release of a new fix for the Windows Installer (MSI). In spite of its non-security status, Microsoft says the MSI patch is a "high priority" security update because it fixes a memory leak that can cause resource utilization levels to spike when users scan their systems using either Windows Update or Microsoft Update. The bug is the cause of several known issues, according to Microsoft.
