(imported topic written by khanand91)

hi all,

maybe a bit of a strange one, but i was wondering how bigfix come by the download url for MS patches? better still is there a way I could list the download url match with the MS or KB number from a baseline for example?

Hi khanand,

We use published information from Microsoft in the security bulletins to get the download urls…

You might try using this in the session debugger or the Excel Connector:

(firsts 8 of name of it, first matches (regex “(http://\S+)”) of scripts of actions of it) of bes fixlets whose (name of it starts with “MS”)

hey ben,

thanks for this … its exellent. Gives me the patch release, url of MS patch detail and the url of the file download for the MS release in question.

I bet others could find this very handy if they ever need to manualy download a bunch MS patches :slight_smile:

thx Andreas
