    I have not heard of any specific issues against it and it is a big one to get installed.  There are already worms targeting this exploit:

    As with any patch, there is always a chance that something can go wrong in your environment - due to already corrupted files, 3rd party software or combinations of 3rd party softwares, as well as just pure chance.  It is always prudent to test your patches on a non-production system first.  With VM being pretty solid these days, it is a good idea to try to replicate as closely as possible your production environment in a VM environment if you cannot afford all the hardware for a proper replication.  You should also try to have at least one replica system of each major server type in your environment in case there were to be a driver issue or whatnot.

    I'm not really sure what that link shows...  maybe if I dig through it...

    As I mentioned, there are always possible issues with 3rd party softwares.  In regards to issues with AV software, there were some issues I am finding re: AVG software, but if you update that first then you should be fine.  There were also a few issues with some linksys wireless cards, but again get updates and you should be ok - if there isn't an update then it probably isn't affected.  It has been a few weeks now since this got released - manufactures are pretty quick to fix any issues that get affected by a critical MS patch.  Again, prudence states to test first for answers regarding your specific environment.
