Microsoft to release only four important patches, 21 Oct 2014 [cached]

"For the second straight month Microsoft is holding fast to their blockade of information," said Ross Barrett, senior manager of security engineering at Rapid7, in an email.
But even those customers have been given short shrift, Barrett argued. "Customers with Premier support are getting a very sparse advance notification 24 hours before the [Patch Tuesday] advisories drop," he said.
Like the previous ANS, the advance notice sent to eligible customers -- a copy was seen by Computerworld -- listed the number of updates and what products they would affect, and described the severity of the underlying vulnerabilities. But as Barrett said, the notice, which was in table format, lacked the level of detail found in the pre-January alerts.
"myBulletins continues to be useless because it is not updated until well after the Patch Tuesday release," said Barrett.
