If you have a Windows 2000, XP, XP/Pro, or 2003 computer I encourage you to install this hot fix. It doesn't do anything you can see --just installs then says its done. According to SANS, it will protect you from this major exploit. I am already aware of several computers which have been compromised due to this security flaw. Those machines are now infested with pop-up software and spam sending hacks.
This patch file and installation has been verified by SANS ( http://isc.sans.org/diary.php?storyid=1010 ).
"Users of the Windows OS should install an unofficial security patch now, without waiting for Microsoft to make its move, advise security researchers at The SANS Institute's Internet Storm Center (ISC)." -- Computerworld

For what its worth, I am installing the patch on all of my machines.
