    Hi Everyone,

    I am trying out Ossec HIDS, the host intrusion detection program. It can report on what files were changed. After a Windows Update Tuesday, I usually see changes to some files. However I do not know how to tell if they are legit changes.

    Does MS make available a list of files that are updated with each Patch Tuesday? I read their Security Bulletins and they don't mention any file names.

    Normally, the KB article for a given fix will list the files under the File Information section. I.e here.
