Latest Windows Patch (ASN.1 Vuln)?

Hi All,

Does having a properly configured firewall minimise the risk of the vulnerability? Do I need to patch all my servers - which are all behind a hardware firewall? I know it would be best practice to patch them, but I cannot get to them all & reboot them today.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Firewalls block and traffic directed at you... It does not block Joe schmoe from checking his personal e-mail (if you allow internet access on users pc's) and opening a virus attached file which would infect your internal network.

Yes, Patching should be done on the server level to ensure the backdoors are all closed. But it would be wise to test the patches first or install them with the backup option if available.
