Has someone found a security exploit in software you're running? To what extent could damage be done, and is your particular system vulnerable? You'll have no real way of knowing (and won't even be able to talk about it) if Microsoft has its way...
Microsoft is desparate to find new ways to pump value back into the software sales business. What's next, a "Microsoft Security Update Subscription Service"? What better way to turn second-rate code into first-rate profit, than to give their own security information artificial value!
