The vulnerability allows a user with restricted permissions to escalate to domain administrator privileges and Microsoft reports that attacks have been seen in the wild. Microsoft has officially stated that "the only way a domain compromise can be remediated with a high level of certainty is a complete rebuild of the domain" so it's critical that all Windows admins apply this patch immediately.
Microsoft recommends first patching domain controllers running Windows Server 2008 R2 or earlier. Next, patch your Windows Server 2012 and later domain controllers. Finally, patch all of your regular systems to ensure complete safety.
