    Security Update 817606 (XP Home SP1)

    Two new WIndow's updates appeared today.
    823559 for XP and Win 98 plus 817606 for Win XP.
    Any information on their reliability?

    See Security Focus and its Bug Track section in the next week or two, because it will take that long for people to assess the impact of patches that were just released today.

    Thanks for the references.

    I have installed 823559 on Win 98 and both 823559 and 817606 on Win XP with no apparent problems.
