Microsoft Patch MS05-051 May Cause Problems

The sys admins in us just had to post this article. Apparently, Microsoft’s patch, MS05-051, which fixes 4 critical security flaws in WinXP, 2000 and 2003 platforms, causes some problems of its own. However, Microsoft has issued an advisory and a set of guidelines to ‘fix’ this problem. So if your XP firewall isn’t working, you can’t login to your computer, your Network Connections folder is empty or one of a handful of other problems, then you may already know why!
