Can Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Distributable be removed form my Exchange server?
A vulnerability scan recently identified Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 installed on a bunch of my servers. Since this is no longer supported by Microsoft, it is being listed as a critical vulnerability. Two of the servers where this is installed are my Exchange 2010 CAS and Mailbox servers. They are both running on Server 2008 R2. Can Visual C++ 2005 be safely removed these Exchange servers. Versions 2008 and 2010 are installed on both servers as well. I just want to make sure that they are not somehow dependent on the older version.
