I have the exact same issue for IIS5. I installed Q300972 last month, but
saw the 200 http result codes for the .ida attacks. I re-ran my install of
Q300972, but I still see the 200 result codes.

I want to hedge this by saying that it does not appear that my IIS5 servers
have been penetrated. The patch seems to be working but I get that
unsettling 200 http result code.
