Generally there are Service Packs and Cumulative updates/ hotfixes which also include the security patches. So try to search for SQL Server service packs (SP) and Cumulative updates (CU) and you will get enough information. Mind you, CUs/hotfixes are something not tested as much as SPs. So, many people apply them only if related to their environment. Last but not least testing should be done before applying any of them in production.

BTW, this [link][1] would give you the latest information under SQL Server common build numbers and service packs

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
