How do I report superseded patches missing from Recommendations (and inconsistencies)

Hi,

 

This is a two-parter...

 

First of all, I noted in this month's scan that there are two vulnerabilities reported which are superseded (long ago), but the Recommendation field does not say so, as it usually does:

Vulnerability ID 6999, MS09-065, superseded by MS10-032

Vulnerability ID 12973, MS12-034, superseded by MS12-074

 

As well, sometimes the Recommendation refers to the patch by a URL ending with an '.aspx' extention, sometimes not; example:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/Bulletin/MS09-065

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/bulletin/ms12-034.aspx

Note, too, that one has MS in capitals, and the other not.

 

Why does this matter? To process our large vulnerability CSV files, I use rather complex Excel sheets with, among other things, string manipulation formulae, and when these things change, it 'breaks' our reports.

 

 

How can I report these things, so that they can be corrected? (please don't make me go through the whole painful ticket submission process!)

 

Thank you!

 

-Paul
