2. What is a DLL; and what is DLL planting?

3. What is MFC?

4. Ought a regular user install this?


Appendix:

1. A security issue has been identified leading to MFC application vulnerability in DLL planting due to MFC not specifying the full path to system/localization DLLs. You can protect your computer by installing this update from Microsoft. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.
