If you run Windows Server this is very important. Microsoft released today a number of out-of-band security updates for Microsoft Windows. From what I have read, these patches (One of my servers has 14 applicable updates since 3am) will be applied to Windows clients as well as Windows Servers, but the vulnerability it protects is only in Windows Server. I have a bit more information but because it is the middle of a busy work day I cannot go into it… but if you are a server admin I strongly recommend you take some time to look at these patches, test them, and apply them ASAP… the two week deadline setting in WSUS is probably not good enough for these ones 😉
Microsoft is not a company that does anything out-of-band for no good reason… if it has gone to the trouble of releasing these patches I suspect they are protecting something pretty serious so make sure you look into them – you can be certain that the hackers are!
