Why would you think Sanjay's announcing to the public the
general availability of this useful security related tool from
the Visio group to be a fruitless spam posting?

It is from MS personnel properly x-posted to relevant groups.
And - it can be a very useful addition if you use MBSA in an
enterprise environment too.
