As usual, it is recommened that you test these updates before deploying them on your network.  BTW, there have been some rumblings on the net about a performance hit and/or machines failing to start up after this months deployments.  I’ve not had any problems myself but there have been some problems with updates over the last two or three months … please make use of the free VM solutions that are out there or the targetting mechanisms built into SMS/WSUS and test before you deploy.
