Re: Suggested errata/addendums
Flash is definitely a pain point, especially for vulnerability management. I agree with you 100% to remove it. Especially at the server level where it is really not needed.

patching - the never ending story ...
hi fans,

well, i think the problem is the following:

when you install all patches and updates, you will get only new problems with vulnerabilities ...

then you need another patch to fix it - and so on !!!

its a never ending race between patch-programmers and blackhat-hackers - and the hackers have gone to win ...

sincerly

Suggested errata/addendums
I'd add a couple things to this very well thought out list:

* Don't just test your Windows updates.  Have and utilize a testbed for ALL your updates.  You never know when something might not play nice with something else.  (Remember the 3-day outage Verizon had on accounts receivable -- prevent customers from paying their bills -- because of an update gone awry?)

* The real solution for Flash is to JUST GET RID OF IT.  ;)
