Concern Over KB2661254
Got an e-mail from ITS Partners regarding a widespread issue with KB2661254. Am I reading this correctly in that it'll affect ALL Altiris 6.x and 7.x customers in some way and recommendation is to NOT install the update on the Altiris servers?
I had my servers set to automatically install updates but have since set them to notify only. According to the second link, below, this patch is already available for download but will be pushed out via Microsoft Update in October. When it does show up, can I simply disable and hide it in Windows Update and re-enable Automatic Updates? I'm hoping hidden updates won't somehow get reactivated for install when Windows is set to automatically install updates.
Also, does anyone know if Symantec is planning to patch their solutions so KB2661254 can be safely installed on my Altiris servers in the future? I'm in the process of migrating over to my SMP 7.1 SP2 server so my Altiris 6 server is still handling production duties. Surprised that I couldn't find any talk on this issue in the forums when it appears KB2661254 could inconvenience everyone.
