Known issues

  • Users who have installed the original version of security update 911280 (MS06-025) may have been affected by an issue involving dial-up connections that use a terminal window, or dial-up scripting. The original version of this security update was released on June 13, 2006. Dial-up scripting is an older technology that is rarely used by modern dial-up connections. If dial-up scripting is used in a connection, the connection may stop responding. This behavior does not affect any dial-up connections that do not use dial-up scripting. This issue may affect direct-dial connections to a corporate network, to a university network, or to some Internet service providers (ISPs). This issue was resolved in the version of the security update that was available from June 27, 2006. We recommend that users who are affected by the issue uninstall the older version of security update 911280 (MS06-025) and then install the latest version. For more information about dial-up scripting, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc751469.aspx
    Customers who have examined their infrastructure and do not use dial-up connections that use a post-connect terminal window or dial-up scripting should continue to deploy security update 911280. Customers who have verified that they are experiencing problems after they install security update 911280 should contact Microsoft Product Support Services for free security-related support from Microsoft. To do this, telephone +1 (866) 727-2338 in the US and Canada, or visit a local international subsidiary on the following Microsoft Web site:

  • An issue has been confirmed that involves using scripts to change device configuration parameters such as parity checking or stop bits. This technology is used with legacy devices and connections. If scripts-making device configuration changes that use the set port parity command, the set port databits command, or the set port stopbits command are used as part of the connection process, connections will not be completed successfully. Microsoft is working to develop and test a revision to this update that will address this issue. If you must use a connection that relies on making device configuration changes, do not install security update 911280 (MS06-025) until the revised version is available.
