Patching Policy for x64-Based Systems

(In this article, "x64" refers to the 64-bit architecture that is used in AMD64 and Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology systems.) Kernel-mode drivers that extend or replace kernel services through undocumented means (such as hooking the system service tables) can interfere with other software and affect the stability of the operating system.
