Subject: no more public exploits

I agree to Bernard J. Duffys point: +1
First test all patches in a test environment before applying.
If all went OK then apply patches networkwide
We use SUS (now WUS) - others to mention are SMS or CA Unicenter
With SUS you can approve updates if they are running without problems (in
the testlab)

Note that MS0411 has some problems:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;835732

Without testing patches you could have a non booting server and thats more
cost intensive ...
I remind the SP6 issue with Lotus not working cause of a broken TCP/IP Stack
or the NT SP4
and Samba problem with EnablePlainTextPassword=yes (what a crap in mind of
security) in the registry
Or the first release of Citrix Metaframe Feature Release 3 which caused the
metaframe database to crash
and resulted in a non working server farm.

just my 0.002 cents
