Microsoft has released its MS09 series by patching a highly critical SMB vulnerability affecting Win2k, Win2k3, Winxp and even Vista and Win2k8.
Microsoft ratings are as mentioned below:
Wow!! Jumbo patch released by Microsoft after a long time (5 years). Out of these 28 patches, 23 of them have been rated Critical, 3 have been rated important and two as moderate.
