Dear god, have you no shame?Matty said:i set windoze update automatically, nice and easy then!
Um... you actually get to choose 'Express' or 'Custom' install. It doesn't install anything without asking you first.Marcel said:Dear god, have you no shame?
First Internet Exploder, now you tell us you have Windows Update to automatically install everything it wants?
There's only one reason you wouldn't be able to register your version of WinXP, so I think we better stop that conversation right there.MyPix said:you dont get any of those features if you cant register your version of Xp Pro , lol
The original link did indeed point to that microsoft page. However, the patch itself was hosted on hexblog.com, not on microsoft.com.Marcel said:Original link has gone, but I was sure it linked to a Microsoft Patch anyway.
That said, there *is* a new vulnerability in windows.
And I think that was what the original link was referring to.
Nowhere does it say "get it from hexblog.com"Microsoft has completed development of the security update for the vulnerability. The security update is now being localized and tested to ensure quality and application compatibility.... ...The update will be released worldwide simultaneously in 23 languages for all affected versions of Windows once it passes a series of rigorous testing procedures. It will be available on Microsoft’s Download Center, as well as through Microsoft Update and Windows Update. Customers who use Windows’ Automatic Updates feature will be delivered the fix automatically.
Even then I wait until it's been thoroughly tested by scores of other users / guinea pigs before I let it even near my system.CriPPle said:Unless info comes from a trusted source. i.e. Microsoft

That's very interesting indeed. It would seem this patch was leaked onto the web this morning and then all existance was removed again.GfK said:Windows Automatic Update installed this patch (KB912919) on both my PCs today.
It wasn't leaked:evilowl said:That's very interesting indeed. It would seem this patch was leaked onto the web this morning and then all existance was removed again.
The file seems to be named WindowsXP-KB912919-x86-ENU.exe but is nowhere to be found now....
