Windows 2000 Updates (after Juli 13 2010)

PostPosted by adun » Wed Aug 25, 2010 12:54 pm

As Microsoft stopped the support for win2k there are some holes detecte in windows XP and 2000. For XP MS give support.
Cause 2000 and XP are very similar the XP patches can be made for 2k.
But this woum't work in evry case, thats why it's important that evrybody helps to provied us.
Things you can do:
1) Check the news if there is any new securitiy leak detectet in Windows XP that might also affect win2k and report it in this blog: Say which file is concerned and what can a attack cause!
2) Try to help us modify the XP patches!

As a friend of mine (the one who desinged the Windows NT 5.0 (modified win2k)) made the patches. They are only available in German. But I will work on this
===============================================================================
1: Security leak in MP3-Decoder (l3codecx.ax-Patch) : http://www.windows-nation.de/KB500180A.EXE
2: Securitiy leak in mfc42.dll: (MFC-Patch): http://updates.windowsnt5.de/main.php?cat=4
3: Securitiy leak LNK (shell32-Problem): some workarounds for Win2k EN : http://nemesis.te-home.net/News/20100720_Patch_for_0day__LNK_file_handling_vulnerability.html
and the one that dosfreak googled:http://code.google.com/p/linkiconshim/

Plz report any bugs or experience using this.
For the LNK file we need to modify the shell32.dll but I don't know how. (Probably somebody could help me)

Greetings

We need a new forum for this as this thread is hard to find.
