Revision for MS08-037


This is Christopher Budd. I wanted to take a moment and let you know about a revision that we’ve made to MS08-037 today.

After the release of  MS08-037, we became aware of reports of ZoneAlarm customers experiencing issues after applying the security updates. We started investigating these reports as soon as we heard about them and have been working to research this issue. We’re still working on this issue but we do have some information from our investigation so far, which we’ve put into the bulletin.

Specifically, we’ve identified that customers who are running either ZoneAlarm or Check Point Endpoint Security (previously named Check Point Integrity) who apply MS08-037 may lose network connectivity after applying these updates. Our investigation so far has shown that no other customers are affected by this issue.

We’re still investigating this issue but we encourage customers who are using ZoneAlarm to review the appropriate ZoneAlarm Web site and Check Point Endpoint customers to  review the appropriate Check Point Web site for the latest guidance or software updates and factor this information into your risk assessment, testing, and deployment planning.

We will update the bulletin and the MSRC weblog with more information as we have it.
