Microsoft Revises Security Patch
Revised security bulletin addresses problems experienced by some XP users, according to the software maker.
The updated MS06-042 security bulletin "fully resolves the security vulnerability discussed in Microsoft Security Advisory 923762," according to a statement.
After originally releasing a cumulative security patch Aug. 8 to fix eight flaws discovered in Internet Explorer, the following week Microsoft said it learned the vulnerability could be publicly exploited and was readying a cure.
Although the vulnerability could be exploited, Microsoft said it was not aware of any active attacks against its customers using the patch.
The original MS06-042 created problems for those using Internet Explorer 6 with Windows XP, Service Pack 1 or Windows 2000, Service Pack 4.
