Microsoft unveils new RSS feed for security update notifications

Microsoft has introduced an RSS feed to the Security Update Guide in bid to allow users get immediate notifications when a new CVE is added.

The URL for the new RSS feed is now live at and is shared via an RSS icon in the SUG.

Users interested in the new RSS Feed feature must first install an RSS Feed reader that could be a desktop application, mobile app, or browser extension. Once users subscribe to the feed, they will automatically receive notifications when Microsoft adds a new CVE to the Security Update Guide.

This will keep users informed of the latest security risks. In addition, users will receive notifications after subscribing to the feed when Microsoft adds a new CVE to the Security Update Guide, which ultimately helps inform users about the latest security risks.

Microsoft’s new feature responds to customer demand. While Microsoft releases new vulnerabilities twice a month, the company publishes details about vulnerabilities that have been fixed in Security Update Guide (SUG). Some bugs do not receive security updates, even when Microsoft releases mitigations that can help protect Internet-exposed servers, meaning that quick security updates were always necessary.
