Microsoft rolls out ‘Emergency’ patch for all currently supported versions of Windows

I received an email alerting me to the release of a ‘Critical’ patch to address a vulnerability in all currently supported versions of Windows. This includes Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Server 2003 and 2008. The update patch, due to it critical nature for 2000, XP and 2003, has been released outside the usual monthly cycle to patch the issues ASAP.
