Microsoft has just released an emergency out-of-band update to address remote code exploits in Windows versions 2000/XP/2003/vista/2008.
Please update Windows systems as soon as possible as exploits are already in the wild. Due to the release of this update, you may experience slow responses from the Windows Update service.
While the EECS firewall blocks traffic on the affected ports, all affected systems – especially mobile systems that come and go from from the EECS network such as laptops – should apply this update as soon as possible.
