Local HTTPS WebService call fails after install MS09-048 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,
    We have two websites running on Win 2003 SP2 server. One is an ASP.NET Website which inturn uses ASMX WebService site as its datalayer. The connection is made using http://localhost:8570/WebServiceName.asmx.

    It was working without any problem for TWO years and on Oct 31st, MS09-048 patch was installed on the server. Starting Nov 2nd, under load - the ASP .NET Website fails to connect to the WebService site intermittently. The error is:

    Exception type: WebException
    Exception message: Unable to connect to the remote server

    Immediate Action:
    We have uninstalled the patch for MS09-48. I'll update you tomorrow if this has a positive effect on the situation.

    Next Steps:
    Anybody facing a similar situation and have any clues?
