Baseline Security Analyzer

This article contains information about the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer tool (MBSA). This tool centrally scans Windows-based computers for common security misconfigurations and generates individual security reports for each computer that it scans. MBSA runs on computers that run Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000, and Windows XP. MBSA can scan for security vulnerabilities on computers that run Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003. MBSA scans for common security misconfigurations in Windows, Internet Information Services (IIS), SQL Server, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Office. MBSA also scans for missing security updates in Windows, IIS, SQL Server, Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player, Exchange Server, Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC), Microsoft XML (MSXML), Microsoft virtual machine (VM), Content Management Server, Commerce Server, BizTalk Server, Host Integration Server, and Office (local scans only). A graphical user interface (GUI) and command-line interface are available in version 1.2.1.

MBSA replaced the stand-alone HFNetChk tool and fully exposes all HFNetChk switches in the MBSA command-line interface (Mbsacli.exe). For additional information about MBSA, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
