Checking in on this month’s release.

Hi everyone. Stephen Toulouse here. As we do every month, after release the Customer Support Service Group, the MSRC, and the affected product groups all monitor uptake of the updates and keep a sharp eye out for any issues that might be causing problems. There were 12 updates this month and of course we’ve been watching closely for signs of problems. So far there’ve been no issues with a vast majority of the updates, but one issue we are tracking has to do with MS06-025, very specifically related to dial up users that use dial up scripting, a very old piece of functionality not widely in use anymore. (Users using dial up for Internet or Remote Access Services who do not use dial-up scripting or terminal windows are unaffected. Users who use Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections are also not affected by this at all as dial-up scripting is not used in VPN connections.)

We’re going to be making an update to KB article 911280 listing the known issues for the MS06-025 bulletin so people are aware of the issue. The Knowledge Base article can be viewed at the following location:

We’ll keep you posted as always with how things are going with the release should we spot any other niche problems.
