SQL service pack 3 instalation

I plan to install sp3 on SQL server and wondering does it going to
remove my current user permissions for tables etc.?
No, installing SP3 won’t affect your user’s permissions. It should not affect any of your SQL Server or database settings. ——————

Brad is correct, better hurry before you get "SLAMMED". See the MS article below: http://www.microsoft.com/security/slammer.asp

Make sure that you look into the option "enable cross-database ownership chaining" before installing SP3. If you do not check this alternative during install you will change how ownership/rights between different databases on the same server work. If your applications depend on this they will break. Also OPENDATASOURCE and OPENROWSET queries (via OLEDB) against remote servers is disabled by default with SP3. Though I do not know if this was the case already before SP3. Links:
