Microsoft Security Bulletin MS14-066 - Critical

Vulnerability in Schannel Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2992611)

we are planning to deploy this out of band patch that released yesterday.
before that can I know whether it critical on Domain controllers and less critical on Servers. we will have to plan to patch it accordingly.

If it is critical on DCs, we will do right away. hope it can wait on other server editions for some time.
please confirm.

how about servers in DMZ, how critical in that environment?

As with ANY critical patch release, read the info from Microsoft.
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/ms14-066.aspx

This is over a week old now and yesterdays release was version 2 of the fix.  It is rated as critical on an OS basis, not what or where the OS installed.  A windows server is a windows server. AD is a role installed ontop of the server, therefore the server is still an affected server.

Good,
  Last Tuesday, an out of band announcement was made, and two security bulletins were impacted.
  First, MS14-066, concerning the SChannel update you mentioned originally, was updated.  They pulled back the Windows 2008 R2, and Windows 2012 patch and replaced them because folks were encountering issues with some of the encryption algorithms.  Yes, its bad, but it impacts may servers... not just DCs.
  Second, MS14-068 was released.  This is the one that impacts Kerberos on DCs.  Folks are running around screaming because apparently there are limited exploits, and I haven't seen that folks are saying that they are 'in the wild' yet.  Yes, install it on your DCs as soon as feasible, after testing of course.  The Microsoft bulletin indicates that it changes a check done by Kerberos, so unless someone is using malformed ticket requests, I don't anticipate problems with the changed code.  (In my testing thus far, I haven't seen any issues.)  The patch is being offered to other systems as well, apparently out of an overabundance of caution.
