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.

I encountered this one recently. Had just cloned 30 identical computers, booted them up and found that the Windows Update thread was hogging the CPU indefinitely on each one. Had to go round each of them disabling AU (not fun when they are running on <1% CPU).

This is a known issue (something to do with internet access) so there may be a fix available.
