Rx for AD

Active Directory Rights Management Service (AD RMS) is designed to lock down files so that corporate info isn't sent to competitors, nosy reporters or other unintended recipients.

But if you don't install an update soon, those RMS restrictions will expire, defeating the whole point of RMS. In fact, you won't even be able to access protected files, nor create new protected files.

The solution is to install the update before Feb. 22. A hotfix is also forthcoming.
