Security patches defined by Microsoft as “critical” or “important” MUST be applied within 5 business days of notification. Should there be active exploits, the time will be adjusted and users will be informed appropriately. Hosts unpatched after the defined time are subject to scanning and removal from the EECS network as per campus IT security policies (http://socrates.berkeley.edu:2002/MinStds/).
Patching is sometimes dependent on the service pack level of the Microsoft OS, and installed applications, please read requirements carefully.
