On Friday came another important announcement from Microsoft. The company stated that a severe exposure affecting the Microsoft windows 2000 server that was running the Windows Media Services will still remain unsettled unless the company again releases a patch, curing the error.

The Microsoft hole released on Tuesday had the ability to allow a hacker to simply take control of the entire system. The company however simply pulled back the patch as it had terribly failed to function for the needed. Jerry Bryant, the group manager of the communications response system for Microsoft stated that soon after the next version for the patch was released, reports started pouring in that indicating that the patch failed to protect against the error reported by the people. He further stated that the main reason for pulling away update was to simply save a reboot for all the clients who still hadn’t installed the patch. According to the investigation, the real issue was actually missed due to concentrating on a specific variant of the real report during the investigation process. The revised version of the patch will be again re-released next week.

Microsoft IT Support says that it will notify all its users through its twitter account when the fixed patch is all set to be released. Bryan said that since the update will just go as one of the key amendments there will be no second notification mailer, even though all the subscribers of the comprehensive notification service will receive a notification as an email from the.

When asked why the previous patch failed to perform and when will it be made available for the users, the company’s representative stated that that they could not decide any particular day are surely planning to re-release the patch. That is the only priority for them now. Only after that, they will be easily able to investigate the issue.
