Frequently check for and apply updates and security patches using Windows Update Services. Doing so helps prevents vulnerabilities in other system components that might lead to attackers being able to gain access to Office Communications Server 2007 R2 servers with administrator privileges and thereby compromise Office Communications Server 2007 R2.

Updates for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with SP2, which ships as part of Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Standard Edition, should also be considered as part of routine security patch maintenance.

Best Practice

  • Keep current with Windows Update.
