How do I rate today's patches?
Initial impressions... "Holy crap!"
That's a lot of reading.
06-040 - install this sucker unless you block the usual RPC ports internally and externally.
06-041 - install this unless you never use DNS to external servers, or can apply the workarounds.
06-042 - install this on any machine that runs Internet Explorer. Then install it on the ones that don't yet.
06-043 - if you use OE6, install it. What the heck, it doesn't cause a restart, so (make sure you're not running OE6 right now, and then) install it anyway.
06-044 - install on any machine that runs Internet Explorer - see 06-042.
06-045 - install on any machine - don't be fooled by the "Important" rating, derived from the requirement that a user must click on an email or attachment or web page - users click on anything.
06-046 - install this. HTML Help is everywhere (thanks, Microsoft!)
06-047 - install this if you use Office, or anything that runs VBA.
06-048 - install this if you use Powerpoint.
06-049 - install this if your users are really sneaky and horrible. Do you trust your users?
06-050 - install this - it's all about protecting against users clicking on hyperlinks. see 06-049.
06-051 - install this.
