Microsoft's February update fixes NT flaw

Cliff Saran
Microsoft has issued eight patches for "critical" security holes in its Windows operating system and specific Windows applications in its February patch update.

The monthly patch update contains patches for Windows Me/98, Windows Server 2003 and XP SP1 and SP2.

One critical patch, Security Bulletin MS05-010, concerning a flaw in Microsoft's License Logging Service, was issued for the now unsupported Windows NT 4.0 server platform.

This latest update comes a month after Microsoft issued another patch for NT4. At the time the company said, "On this rare occasion, we believe that this vulnerability presents a serious risk to a broad number of customers. We determined that the best course of action to help protect customers was to release this security update."
