I wonder if it has sense to package the MS Security Updates (KB...). I need to deploy them easily and I wonder if I can include in an msi one or more KB Security updates. What are the implications of doing that? And from the pure packaging point of view do I have to take any special consideration?

Thanks in advance

I like WSUS. It's fairly easy to use and implement versus ITMU or manually deploying.

You should NOT repackaging security updates into MSI's. If the MSI engine needs to be updated, it could do some seriously bad things.
