"VERY IMPORTANT PATCH"

February 24, 2002

 |  Version: Windows Media Player ASF Unchecked Buffer Vulnerability MS01-056

Summary

This fixes a problem when a malicious user can purposly crash the application and while it's crashed, he can send a virus such as Nimbda or Code Red. This will eventually allow him FULL ADMINISTRATIVE RIGHTS to your entire network domain. The main threat applies to Windows NT/2000, since there is not really any "file level security" on Windows 9x/XP Home Edition.

"Installed ok"

December 23, 2001

 |  Version: Windows Media Player ASF Unchecked Buffer Vulnerability MS01-056

Summary

I have found that MS updates like to run alone. I also virus scan the downloaded file before I install. I shut down all running programs until only systray and explorer are runing. A fast way to do this is with EndItAll. After the install is complete I reboot. Note - Most MS fixes/patches can be viewed with Winzip.
