While Microsoft rates this as important only, we at the Internet Storm Center feel that it is very critical. It is easy to exploit this. One (spoofed) packet could allow an attacker to "own" a vulnerable system. The TCP/IP stack is vulnerable to a buffer overflow in the handling of source routed packets.
While some firewalls might protect from this, consider systems that are used on the road such as in airport, hotels, ... so they must be protected now.
