One of the dozen security updates Microsoft released last week is causing network connection trouble for some users, the company said.

The fix delivered with security bulletin MS06-025 can interfere with a certain types of dial-up networking connections, Microsoft said in an article on its support Web site published late Monday. The patch repairs two "critical" security flaws in Windows that could allow an attacker to commandeer a vulnerable PC.

...the company recommends that people who need to use dial-up scripting or terminal window features do not install the security update.

I use RRAS quite a lot over ADSL & dial up and was little nervous about applying this but the patch deployd fine.

At the end of the day, once a patch is available, hackers are going to try and exploit the vunerability so you dont really have a choice you have to apply it or risk being compromised.
