Microsoft’s Baseline Security Analyzer tool has been updated to version 2.3 and includes support for Windows 8.1, Windows 8, windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012.
MBSA is built on the Windows Update Agent and Microsoft Update infrastructure, ensuring consistency across Microsoft management products, including Microsoft Update (MU), Windows Server Update Services 2.0 and 3.0 (WSUS), Systems Management Server Inventory Tool for Microsoft Update (ITMU) (SMS), System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2007, and Small Business Server (SBS.). MBSA 2.3 runs on Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP systems and will scan for missing security updates, rollups and service packs using Microsoft Update technologies. To assess missing security updates, MBSA will only scan for missing security updates, update rollups and service packs available from Microsoft Update. MBSA will not scan or report missing non-security updates, tools or drivers.
