Security Updates for February

  • Comments 4
The Windows Security Updates for February have been posted. Here's a link to the page:
Windows Security Updates Summary for February 2005
The security updates for February 2005 include several high-priority updates for Microsoft Windows that also affect Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Media Player technologies. If you have any of the software listed on this page installed on your computer, you should install the updates from Windows Update.
Here's a link to the Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary on TechNet. Also note that there are two Webcasts planned for information around the February bulletins:

We are extending this webcast by one hour this month to allow additional time to answer customer questions about the details and deployment of the updates.

  • Interesting. Both before and after installing the listed security updates, Internet Explorer blocks a cookie that your web page tries to set. IE's eyeball flag says that
    http://brianjo.textamaerica.com/mypage.asp?count=1&title
    is a restricted site. But when I go to IE's security options and display a list of restricted sites, the list is empty. I wonder how IE decides to treat a site as restricted, and how it knew to block your cookie.
  • i would like to download ie´s security to internet explorer 6.

    i have a windows server 200 trial edition at home. Now i am in a cibercafe.

    thanks

  • Interesting item about the TextAmerica cookie Norm. I haven't seen that before. Do your settings prohibit cookies? I think you'll also get a popup if the site is in your trusted list.

    Cheers,
