I think the problem is MS rushed out the update without testing it sufficiently.

Hi FwF,

Here in the Netherlands the patch was available from 19.30 henceon. I ventured to install it. As you can read here: http://isc.sans.org/diary.html?storyid=2562 there are two contra-indications. Is this often with out of cycle patches that they have "ifs" like these.
It is almost as with a vaccin. We want to vaccinate 95% of the population, but we'd rather not inform you of the side effects, which may be grave. What you think of this attitude?
