    We've applied this patch to a lot of systems (3000+) with no ill-effects so far that can be attributed to it.

    The odd thing about these worms is that they can flare up again from time-to-time. We...

    There's a fairly low-key but worrying bit of malware exploiting this at the moment: http://voices.washingtonpost.com/securityfix/2008/10/data-stealing_trojan_exploitin.html

    Some of it depends on the seriousness of the flaw and the likelihood of it being exploited, versus the inherent risks of applying the patch.

    For example, with the WMF patch I manually tried out a...

    I hate to think what that might break though. Isn't the .dat file an integral part of an RTF formatted message?

    Not one to put off patching though - although you don't need to reboot servers, the...
