I read somewhere a while back that MS was punishing users for taking advantage of unofficial fixes for MS flaws or vulnerabilities. Do you know if they are still doing that?

I don't know the answer. But I'll not download and install that patch if I'm not sure of it. It is mentioned at Calendar of Updates, BleepingComputer, and CastleCops, I don't know if there are others.

Post at CastleCops say that the patch will not work on 98 too.
The MS fix will be out next week so I will not go crazy waiting. I keep things safe so I should be ok so will wait.

Good reading there.

13. What operating systems are affected?

It has recently been claimed by iDEFENSE and Microsoft that the following operating systems are at risk:

1. Windows XP Service Pack 1
2. Windows XP Service Pack 2
3. Windows Server 2003
4. Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1


If you have one of these then install the patch. Other operating systems are not affected.
