I'm running Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer 2.1 against some servers that don't have outbound access to the Internet, by design of firewall restrictions, and therefore I'm wishing to run MBSA in offline mode.

In order to do so, I need the list of updates in the file named "". Is there a well-known page or URL at Microsoft for downloading the most up-to-date version of that file for MBSA offline mode?
