Now hear this..

Recently.. ran SP4 on some Win2k servers and workstations.. and a
number of UPDATES as identified in `Windows Update' function. Nineteen
in all.. however pulled LAN cable this time (after download phase).

It took a LONG TIME to complete 19 updates.. and then after reboot.. 9
more updates.. some of them the SAME. This indicates updates cannot
complete unless reporting outside the local network.

Due to this.. I'd suggest that MS Updates can compromise your LAN !!
