    Microsoft patch that crashes NT 4.0

    Maybe this should be in tech humor cause it's kind of funny. M$ released a patch 12-02-2002
    that could crash NT. It seems they would have tested it before releasing into the public, but
    this patch could let a attacker get admin privileges on the system. A flaw in the WM_TIMER function that lets this happen. source Guess the sql virus got them on their toes.

    Microsoft is investigating the issue and will release an updated patch shortly, the Redmond, Wash., company said in a revised version of its security bulletin.

    I installed a patch on my computer a few weeks ago and my system hasnt crashed or gotten the blue screen of death or anything, and my uptime has more than tripled! its amazing!
    The patch is a lil bit on the big side but still its worth it, once you download the patch and install your set, no more crashing, no more errors, nothin like that, you can actually get things done!! you can download the patch at these websites:

    http://www.linuxiso.org

    what kind of patch did you think i was talking about
    Kill the lights, let the candles burn behind the pumpkins’ mischievous grins, and let the skeletons dance. For one thing is certain, The Misfits have returned and once again everyday is Halloween.The Misfits FreeBSD
    Cannibal Holocaust
    SuSE Linux
    Slackware Linux

    there have been precendces to this before.

    Anyone remember SP 6 followed by SP6a like two weeks later because of the massive problems with it?

    How about SP 5 which everyone I know skipped because of all the bugs in it.
