Security Update for Windows

Microsoft has released a major security patch that fixes critical holes in Windows XP, 2000, NT 4.0 and Windows server 2003. PC World writes Six of these are rated “critical,” and most of them occur in Windows XP, 2000, and NT 4.0, and in Windows Server 2003. For users of XP, this bundle of fixes will be included in Windows XP Service Pack 2–whenever it finally shows up. But Microsoft decided that you should patch these bad boys right away.
