I searched for more info and found this:

The problem appears to lie in a widely used Windows component called the
Active Template Library (ATL). According to security researcher Halvar
Flake, this flaw is also to blame for an ActiveX bug that Microsoft
identified earlier this month. Microsoft issued a kill-bit patch for the
problem on July 14, but after looking into the bug, Flake determined that
the patch didn't fix the underlying vulnerability, so new attacks are
possible.

thanks bob
at least they are issuing it this week, I start my monthly maintenance
clients on monday and I would hate if they issued it later in the week, then
I would have to go back and do the other ones again. At least I only have
to go back and do 4 and not 25

That does make a difference. ;-)

I would tempted to delay those first 4 and not have any do-overs. Of course
there may be other considerations. There usually are.
