I just received this information from our Microsoft rep. This is a brand new security alert from Microsoft unrelated to the alert from a few weeks ago. They suggest everyone should act on this information quickly since it only took 16 days for the last exploit to be developed after the discovery of the vulnerability.
Please go out to www.windowsupdate.com (Redirector) for www.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
There is a critical security patch that was just made available. Please download and install it.
There are also (4) for Office, you can get them here: www.officeupdate.com
Please feel free to encourage your friends and customers to install the updates.
Also, you might look into SUS - "Software Update Server." It's a free Microsoft product to help you manage patches and updates.
It's very cool, it's very free, and it's here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/windowsupdate/sus/default.asp
