Offline Update of Windows Boxen

While catching up on the month of podcasts I somehow spaced on, came a cross an episode of Security Now that mentioned ctupdate from Heise Security.  Essentially, you pick what products you want to create an update disc for, then the language, then the format (cd or dvd) and hit go. It downloads all the updates from and packages them on the cd.  From there it uses MS’ Baseline Security dealy to update the machine. Add in the nice feature of it being able to automatically reboot and log in (with an account it creates for this purpose, and delete when it’s done) and it’s quite the tidy little package.

Download it available here.

Decent guide here.
