We have received some reports of a potential issue with MS06-025.  Here is a snippet of what appears to be the problem as it was report to us:

"We received couple of calls that users are
not able to dial up after applying MS06-025 (KB911280).

I verified this on a test machine and it looks like it breaks dial up.

We have some scripts that need to be run in order to authenticate the user
properly after the dial up connection is established.

It looks like the patch prevents scripts from running at all. Even when I
turned on the terminal window (in interactive logon and scripting) I can't
log in manually at all. After the connection is established I can see the
Username prompt in the terminal window but I can't enter any data.

Uninstalling the patch fixes this."

UPDATE:  The case number and guidance we received from Microsoft has been changed.  Sorry for the initial confusion that some of you may have faced trying to use this case number.   Here is the updated guidance from Microsoft that we have been given.  They want each customer to open their own case. You need to mention MS06-025 breaking dial up and your case will be created and then added to the master case.  The number to use to contact Microsoft for free support, for issues such as these, remains the same:   1-(866) PC-SAFETY.
