    That's not really very informative. What does it do? Who does it apply to? Is it already in asklepois's signature? :)

    Actually a ton of security bulletins went out yesterday. I got 4 emails from tech net. One of the worst flaws has to do with MS Office. But there is also an update to the XP OS.

    C Net explains them pretty well.

    the update available for Windows is not a critical update.
    it is a low risk update.
    btw i have those new 5 updates listed in my sig ;)

    Asklepios,
    Excellent!!!!

    I haven't been faithful to the office updates so had many sp's to install. But everything seems to be ok after all the updating.

    Word to the wise here... you will need your software disks to get any of the MS OFFICE updates. All security fixes require that you have the latest service pack installed prior to downloading. And they warn you that if the software is not legit the updates could do damage to your system.

    The EULA has some new wording too....

    the new ones are critical and not on your list......they relate to compromises to your system through memory..............possibly for xp users only

    there is no new update for windows, that is critical.
    the one you are talking about is there in the first link in my sig and it applies to following OS
    * Windows NT® Server 4.0
    * Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition
    * Windows 2000
    * Windows XP
    * Windows Server™ 2003

    if you think something is latest and is not there...pls link me to it and i will add it there but i m quite sure there is nothing else ;)
