Severity options:

Severity Description
Critical Vulnerability may allow code execution without user interaction.
Important Vulnerability may result in compromise of the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of user data. The client is compromised with warnings or prompts regardless of the prompt’s provenance, quality, or usability.
Moderate Impact of the vulnerability is mitigated to a significant degree by factors such as authentication requirements or applicability only to non-default configurations.
Low Impact of the vulnerability is comprehensively mitigated by the characteristics of the affected component.
Unspecified Vulnerability may result in random malfunctions.

Category options:

Category Description
Security Updates A widely released fix for a product-specific, security-related vulnerability. Security vulnerabilities are rated by their severity. The severity rating is indicated in the Microsoft security bulletin as critical, important, moderate, or low.
Update Rollups A tested, cumulative set of hotfixes, security updates, critical updates, and updates that are packaged together for easy deployment. A rollup generally targets a specific area, such as security, or a component of a product, such as Internet Information Services (IIS).
Applications Application (software) is a subclass of computer software that employs the capabilities of a computer directly and thoroughly to a task that the user wishes to perform.
Service Packs A tested, cumulative set of all hotfixes, security updates, critical updates, and updates. Additionally, service packs may contain additional fixes for problems that are found internally since the release of the product. Service packs my also contain a limited number of customer-requested design changes or features.
Feature Packs New product functionality that is first distributed outside the context of a product release and that is typically included in the next full product release.
Updates Updates are code fixes for products that are provided to individual customers when those customers experience critical problems for which no feasible workaround is available.
Definition Updates A widely released and frequent software update that contains additions to a product’s definition database. Definition databases are often used to detect objects that have specific attributes, such as malicious code, phishing websites, or junk mail.
