Microsoft Microsoft has released patches for 19 vulnerabilities, 14 of which are critical, hitting at holes in Excel, Word, Office, Exchange, Internet Explorer, cryptographic technology and the whopper of them all, the zero-day vulnerability in the DNS Server's use of RPC. The DNS remote code execution vulnerability affects server-grade operating systems, including Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003, and only those that have the DNS service enabled, such as Domain Controller, DNS Server or Microsoft Small Business Server configurations.

Careful When installing

I installed these today on our SBS 2003 Sp2 server, over RDP and server when down completely to where someone had to login locally and restart that server.

The operating system was still working, but all the networking services stopped on the machine.

Hopefully this was just a fluke, but I thought I would give you a heads up.
