I beg to differ and would have to side with Niek. This may belong on
Focus on MS or such a list, but this list deals with vulnerability
information and discussion.
Let's check the charter:
"Any information pertaining to vulnerabilities is acceptable" - notice
that this makes no mention of discussing whether a patch breaks
applications, since this isn't a vulnerability.
Now, if we were discussing an exploit and someone said "This has been
fixed by SP2" or "SP2 should have fixed this but didn't", or "SP2
causes this", then sure, that's appropriate. But "SP2 broke my
computer please help" belongs somewhere else.
