Fixes a Flash vulnerability in version 6… from the Security Fix

This patch also includes the security fixes for Flash versions 7.x and 8.x that Adobe released in March. If you applied those patches, you shouldn’t have to update, but just check your Flash version anyway to be sure. The most recent safe version of Flash is 8.0.24.0.

The last update is a vulnerability in MDTC (Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator) which could allow a denial of service. Moderate for Windows 2000. Low for XP, 2003. So, get to patching.
