    WIN XP PATCH (WIN XP PRO)

    Shortly after SERVICE PACK 1 came out, a guy named Steve (GIBSON??) put out a patch for people who did not want to install SP1. What was the patch and where can it be found?

    Thanks.

    FOUND IT - it was by Steve Gibson and it was called XPDITE. Downloaded and installed. Sorry I could not remember it before.

    Hi Trebor--
    You can use Steve Gibson's patch or simply find the exploited PC Health file by doing a search for the file "uplddrvinfo.htm" (without quotes). This Tecth TV article will context it for you.
    How did We Handle the XP Security Hole?.
    What is unfortunate and hypocritical, with more than enough respect due to M$oft, and their Security Initiative, Palladium is their high regard for the 25 million plus users of Windows XP whom they left with an exploit that could wipe out all their drives by simply viewing the wrong URL (not opening an attachment) for eleven weeks with an ex-U.S. Attorney as their new Security Czar in charge of promoting such quintissential integrity: Gates: Security is Top Initiative: Trustworthy Computing. Nothing strikingly trustworthy about leaving 25 million people and a lot of enterprises with a hole big enough to drive the Falcons-Steeler's defensive lines through for eleven weeks.
    This has been on a number of Lounge Threads.
