Information about Updated MS06-025

Hey everyone, this is Adrian Stone here and up until recently I was the newest member of the MSRC. I wanted to use my first post to let everyone know that we have updated MS06-025 complete with updated binaries for the affected platforms.

As many of you may know, there were some issues identified after the initial release affecting some users who required the use of legacy dial-up connections that use a terminal window, or dial-up scripting, or used scripts to change device configuration parameters. Additional details are covered in the bulletin and KB911280. If you are not affected by any of these scenarios or have installed the original update without any issues then you should not be impacted by the re-release.

I want to thank everyone out there for working with our folks in Product Support Services as well as well as the feedback we received to at the MSRC indicating that there may have been an issue. I definitely want to thank everyone even more for their patience while the guys over in Windows Sustained Engineering having been living and breathing RRAS for the last week getting it all sorted out.

On what I hope is last time I hear “Hey Adrian what is RRAS anyway and what does this update address?” RASMAN is the service that has been affected by the update which belongs to RRAS the technology. It seems that this has been the question that I have been hearing for about the last week.

Well that’s all for now folks and I can say that this has been one of the more interesting releases that I have been a part of since joining the MSRC. Now I am definitely ready to move on to next months update cycle.

– Adrian
