That'd have to be very fast indeed, given that only one windows update mirror is used at a time, and patches are downloaded and applied in sequence.Question: What speed access is needed to guarantee "mean time to download patches" is significantly less than "mean time to probed by packet-to-0wn" (significantly == 20x lower still gives a 5% chance of getting 0wned while patching)?
Two ways to get at least some safety -
# Machine behind NAT while it is being updated
# Patches preferably downloaded onto a CD and applied offline
