NOTE: I’ve confirmed that the exact same technique used to update the VC libraries and DLLs in KB971090 are used in KB2465367 also. That is, the manifest version of your app will be increased to 8.0.50727.5592 (from 8.0.50727.762 which was the original SP1, or 8.0.50727.4053 which was the July 2009 security update). This security update contains the new MFC fixes, as well as the original ATL fixes from July 2009.
