A security issue has been identified in the Server service that could allow an attacker to compromise your Windows-based system and gain control over it. You can help protect your computer by installing this update from Microsoft. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.

"A security issue has been identified in the blah, blah, blah that could allow an attacker to compromise your Windows-based system and gain control over it".

Ho, hum.

I'm on Auto Update and, in any event, always check at MS Update every Patch Tuesday.

And there was me thinking it might be something interesting or exciting! ;-))
