WMI crashes on Windows Server 2003

On our Windows Server 2003 servers we have seen crashes in WMI (wmiprvse.exe) failing in msvcr90.dll after applying Configuration Manager 2012 SP1.

By examining the error reports across multiple servers using the eventviewer it was clear that the crash always occur in the wmiprvse.exe process in the Visual C++ runtime at address/offset 0x00056b1d.

I have only seen the issue for version 5.2.3790.4455 but that is also the only version of wmiprvse.exe I have in my environment.

The issue has been fixed in Cumulative Update 1 for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager with Service Pack 1 (wow, long name for CU1 for CM12SP1!)  The update can be found here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2817245
