Security Notifications from Microsoft Windows 8.1 App
Microsoft is "suspending" emails (because of the Canadian SPAM law effective 7/1). I found these REALLY useful. I’m sure others did as well.
Notice to IT professionals:
As of July 1, 2014, due to changing governmental policies concerning
the issuance of automated electronic messaging, Microsoft is
suspending the use of email notifications that announce the
* Security bulletin advance notifications
* Security bulletin summaries
* New security advisories and bulletins
* Major and minor revisions to security advisories and bulletins
In lieu of email notifications, you can subscribe to one or more of
the RSS feeds described on the Security TechCenter website.
For more information, or to sign up for an RSS feed, visit the
Microsoft Technical Security Notifications webpage at
So then I looked at the page referenced above. My "quick and dirty" very basic ‘Security Notifications from Microsoft Feed Reader’ app is now available in the Windows Store. http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/app/security-notifications-from/f5459c09-6233-4100-bfe1-d198111fc30b
I hope that Microsoft reinstates the emails after they figure out how to exclude Canadian customers who don’t want to receive this important information.
