Yes and no.
Yes to SBS 2008 as it affects SharePoint 3
Yes to SBS v7 as it affects SharePoint 2010 foundation
No to SBS 2003.
I’ll be honest I’ve not hit any issues patching SharePoint but some have… most of the issues I’ve seen lately have been directly due to someone mucking around with the SharePoint search trying to solve search errors. As long as you haven’t mucked, you should be just fine.
That said this isn’t a patch I’m screaming at you to install, so if you want to hold back, that’s fine with me.

SymptomUsers are prompted for authentication when they try to browse a SharePoint site. Windows Server 2003 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 include a loopback check security feature that helps prevent reflection attacks on your computer. Therefore, authentication fails if the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) or the custom host header that you use does not match the local computer name.
To resolve this issue, disable the authentication loopback check. To do this, follow these steps:
- Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
- Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
- Right-click Lsa, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
- Type DisableLoopbackCheck, and then press Enter.
- Right-click DisableLoopbackCheck, and then click Modify.
- In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.
- Exit Registry Editor.
- Restart the computer.
