To apply the MS14-066 patch or not?

hi guys

I've been hearing from all over the place to install the MS14-066 patch and that you've then got problems afterwards once you have.

We have two Exchange servers which I have installed it on but i haven't restarted the machines yet for them to become effective.

The servers these are on are Windows 2008 R2 SP1,

I still have some Windows 2003 R2 servers.

Any feedback would be great guys

Thanks

Hi,

Microsoft pulled it and re-released it along with another, KB3018238, due to reports of TLS and SQL issues. The the original “faulty” version is KB2992611.

This update  (KB2992611) broken one of our customer's OWA but MS only identified issues with SQL.
