In addition to the bulletins mentioned above, Microsoft also re-released bulletin MS05-004. This re-release updates detection includes Server 2003 Service Pack 2 and Vista as affected platforms. There were no changes to the update binaries, so if you have already successfully installed this update, you do not need to reinstall it. Customers who have applied MS07-040 are unaffected by this detection update, as their systems are up-to-date from a .NET Framework security stance. Please refer to the bulletin revision history for more information.References:
