KB2440591 Server 2003

Hello All,
   After installing KB2440591 from Windows Update on one of my production Win2k3 servers .. all websites inside IIS refused to start.  FTP sites stared ok.  I had to remove KB2440591 in order to get the websites running again.
   This machine is NOT using Routing and Remote Access so I am at a loss as to why an update targeted at routing and remote access would do behave like this...

   Has anyone had a similar experiance?
Thanks...
Dale

Hello

The KB update only the file Ndproxy.sys. Are you using sp2 for Windows?
Here you have some info about the exploit http://blog.fortinet.com/kernel-buffer-overflow-in-ndproxy-sys-ms10-099/

can you look vhat version is ndproxy.sys? Then copy manually the good version of file on one server for testing. Look on the event log for errors.

Hello Dan,
   Sorry -- I cant afford to take any servers down for such a test...
I am happy with not installing the update and keep my sites running...

Thanks...
