After removing a security update that was useless, Microsoft releases patch for Windows 2000.
It’s about a patch that did no good and that Microsoft has become genuinely useful. Last week, we indicate in our columns that Microsoft had plans to make a new release of an updated security after realizing (information of third?) that the first publication was ineffective to fill properly vulnerability.
Good news for the affected users, which will however probably not very numerous, Microsoft did not wait for the next patch Tuesday in May 2010 and suggested the fix that we hope this time effectively.
The update described in security bulletin MS10-025 addresses to Windows 2000 Server, and Microsoft only points. It fixes a stack overflow in Windows Media Services, a component of which is still not installed by default with Windows 2000 and support for streaming media applications.
Please note that if the first patch – the inefficient – was applied, it is not removed in order to implement the new version.
