There is a huge .xml file which can be derived from using the MBSA.
Unfortunately it is not as easy to use as it once was (e.g. using
command line switch /HF).
See if you can figure out what this means...

Q: What happened to the HFNetChk-style scan of previous versions of MBSA?
The previous MBSA detection engine has been replaced with the Windows Update Agent,
and it has been fully integrated into the MBSA-style scan. For users accustomed to the
/HF mode of scanning in previous versions of MBSA, a lightweight solution requiring only
Mbsacli.exe and Wusscan.dll is provided using the /xmlout (xml data) parameter.
This parameter provides basic output to the console in XML format, making integration
with other solutions fast and easy. The output includes all the data elements of the /HF
mode and more.
When you've figured it out please come back and tell us. <eg>
