Microsoft has dropped an out of cycle patch on everyone, the patch covers a fault in RPC which is very similar to the fault in RPC/DCOM that was exploited by Blaster Worm. The consequences of not patching could potentially be the same, thousands of computer infected to do the bidding of those who would exploit it. Patch or die folks, patch or die.
