MS08-030 Re-released for Windows XP SP2 and SP3
Microsoft Security Bulletin MS08-030 Updated: June 19, 2008

Microsoft urges XP SP2, SP3 users to reinstall patch

Microsoft yesterday reissued a patch originally released last week. The software giant urged users of Windows XP SP2 and SP3 to install it promptly, in order to close a critical flaw in Windows.

Microsoft said patch MS08-030, issued on Patch Tueday 'June 10', did not completely solve a vulnerability in Windows XP's Bluetooth stack that could allow a hacker to execute code on the compromised machine. The same patch also covered Windows Vista, but Microsoft said the problem does not affect that version of the operating system...blamed the issue on "two separate human issues"...

This update was installed on my machine on 6/13/08. Do I need to install the 6/19/08 re-release?
Thanks!

Yes, that's why it was re-released and the Bulletin updated 6/19/08. If you had auto notifications on, you would have been advised to download and install it by now.

Microsoft Security Bulletin MS08-030 Critical

Note: If you expand the link FAQ for Bluetooth Vulnerability - CVE-2008-1453 and look under "What systems are primarily at risk from the vulnerability", you will see:

All systems with Bluetooth enabled are at risk from this vulnerability


I don't use Bluetooth but installed the update anyway (as I do with all critical updates) so I'm covered if I decide to use it. At my age I may forget about it later and then get hosed.

Okay thanks! I do have "auto notifications" ON, but have not seen an advisory to download and install the re-release. I updated Windows today and did not see the re-release being offered to me from the Windows update page either. Not sure why that is but it's okay, I'll download and intall it manually. Thanks again!
