Microsoft Updates Fix for Critical Win2K Hole


Microsoft has issued workaround instructions for a buggy patch issued last Tuesday as part of its monthly security update. The patch repairs a critical security hole, which could leave Windows 2000 systems open to an Internet worm attack. Microsoft says that few systems have been affected by issues with the update for a security hole known as MS05-051, which could allow attackers to gain control of Windows 2000 computers via an unchecked buffer in the Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC).
