This update is intended to stop AutoPlay functionality from working on USB drives, external hard drives, or network shares. This update is available for Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008. For more information about this update as well as the download links, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 971029.

I wonder why MS waited so long? Better late than never I guess.

Thanks for the link!

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

:thumbsup:

The advisory was updated August 25, 2009. I was busy (like everyone else) the past week or so with the new Wink32.sys infection so I was late to read this myself. :flowers:

Better late than never

was refering to Microsoft waiting a few years to correct this vulnerability

If we can wait that long then a few days is insignificant.

Checked my computer and I got that (KB967715) 5/24/09. I think this the same as 971029, is that correct?
