Patchers can relax: on Thursday Microsoft announced that it won't
release any new fixes to its operating systems or applications
Tuesday, the next regularly scheduled date for its monthly security

"On March 8th, 2005, the Microsoft Security Response Center is
planning to release no new security bulletins," the Redmond,
Wash.-based developer said on its Microsoft Security Bulletin Advance
Notification Web site Thursday morning.

The Thursday prior to the second Tuesday of each month, Microsoft
gives users a heads-up by disclosing the number of scheduled security
bulletins, and the severity level of the most critical. It's unusual
for Microsoft not to release any security fixes; the last time that
happened was December 2003, just months after the company instituted
its monthly patching cycle.
