        In August 2008, the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) announced three security-related programs – (1) Microsoft Active Protections Program (MAPP); (2) Microsoft Exploitability Index, and; (3) Microsoft Vulnerability Research (MSVR) – that would collectively share more information with partners and customers. With these programs, customers have increased access to more effective countermeasures and additional information to better evaluate risks. This paper highlights the three programs and the progress of each.
