Microsoft fixes Windows security patch
Microsoft late Tuesday updated a critical security patch to address the network connection trouble some people had with the first version of the fix.
The first patch, delivered in security bulletin MS06 025, was one of the dozen released by Microsoft on this month's Patch Tuesday. It repairs two high risk security flaws in a Windows routing and remote access component that could allow an attacker to commandeer a vulnerable PC.
However, the fix can interfere with certain dial-up networking connections. Problems occur only with dial-up connections that use a terminal window, or dial-up scripting, Microsoft said. This type of connection may stop responding after the patch is applied, it added. Microsoft fixes Windows security patch | Tech News on ZDNet
