Microsoft Fixes Patch Installation Snafu
When trying to download the seven security updates released by Microsoft on Tuesday, many users found one of the patches continually failed to install. MS06-007 covered a denial of service attack in the Windows TCP/IP stack. In response, Microsoft has acknowledged the problem and updated the patch.
The issue only affected users trying to upgrade through Automatic Updates, Windows Update, Windows Server Update Services and Systems Management Server 2003 when using the ITMU. Microsoft has since resolved the problem and says the patch will be properly installed the next time Windows checks for updates. Users can also visit Windows Update manually.
