Two More Windows Patches from Microsoft

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You


In addition to the critical fix for the Help flaw which implicated Active X, and which Aunty posted about here, Microsoft today announced two additional security patches for Windows users.

The first one involves both a cursor and icon handling vulnerability, along with a Windows kernal vulnerability, and affects a broad range of Windows products, including 98, 98 SE, ME, NT Server, 2000, and all versions XP except for SP2.


The second one is a vulnerability in the Windows indexing service, and affects 2000, Server 2003, and all versions of XP other than SP2.

A full list of affected systems, along with the fixes for each, for the cursor and icon handling and kernal vulnerabilities is available [Page no longer available – we have linked to the archive.org version instead].
