How to block Windows Update KB960715

This update is causing one of our web applications to not display properly.
Is there a way for me to block this update. I am using ISA Server 2004 and
would like to block the update using our ISA server. Thanks.

[Crossposted to ISAServer newsgroup]

What web application is involved here? If all of your MS and third-party
applications are fully patched themselves, installing KB960715 shouldn't be
causing any problems.

There are only two (2) killbits set by KB960715, one for Akamai Download
Manager and one for Research in Motion (RIM) AxLoader. Both Akamai and RIM
have released security updates related to these killbits: Have you installed
the appropriate update(s) yet? See the FAQ section of
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec...ry/960715.mspx.

NB: KB960715 also includes the killbits in KB956391 (originally released 14
Oct-08); cf. http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec...ry/956391.mspx.

Now that you mention Akamai, how often should I see a remote address in
TCPView as follows:

[System Process]:0 TCP deploy.akamaitechnologies.com

It seems like I see that a port opening for this practically all day.

Almost every time I start TCPview, I see several instances of
deploy.akamaitechnologies.com in a TIME_WAIT state.
