ANOTHER Microsoft patch problem



This is getting to be like clockwork, but it sounds like this may be one of the nastiest problems so far. It appears that there is a problem with one of the recent patches from Microsoft MS06-49. It looks as though the problem is data corruption for small files (under 4096 bytes.) There’s a google groups thread here. The key factor seems to be that IF the folder is compressed, the data within is subject to this possible corruption.


This appears to just affect Windows 2000 pro and server. It’s been reported to Microsoft, but no official word yet from them. (Maybe they should have claimed that the bug disabled DRM on subscription based media files….)

I haven’t tried to do an official count, but it seems like one “problem child” update a month this year for MS.

Oh, and tomorrow (Tuesday the 12th) is patch day…. happy rebooting.
