As a best practice, Microsoft recommends installing the latest service pack and security updates for IIS, as well as any other components running on the web server. Although many customers utilize the online Security Bulletin Search as a reference for what hotfixes to apply for a given Product and Service Pack choice, the information provided by that tool does not take into account cumulative rollups (it shows all updates released after the specified Service Pack). For that reason, we recommend that customers who deploy IIS use the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) to identify security risks.
