Thread: ZA 7 Problems with Security Patch 956803 (bulletin MS08-066)?

    Default ZA 7 Problems with Security Patch 956803 (bulletin MS08-066)?

    Susan Bradley (SBS MVP) advises against applying this just-released patch until an updated version of ZA is available. Is one?

    What is the minimum version number of ZASS that does not have problems with the security patch in MS Update?

    Thanks,

    Joe M

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro

    See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956803 and look if the ZA you are using fits the category in the "Known issue with this security update" section.
    The ZAs released for "fix" version the dns patch by MS and all later versions are not affected by the latest Security Patch 956803 .
    Neither are affected the older 6.1 and the 5.5 versions of the ZA.

    Thanks for the fast response. It's hard to tell from the MS bulletin whether the problem was fixed in a version after 7.0.482.0 or whether MS was not aware of a version after 7.0.482.0.

    Just to clarify...If I'm running ZAP 6.1.744.000, I won't be affected if I download the MS update released 10/14? Thanks...
