Important Info From Brian Livingston
Posted 31 October 2008 - 03:17 PM
about the latest MS patch MS08-067.
* "Are Windows NT and Windows 98 machines susceptible to the security hole?"
Windows NT, 95, 98, and Me are supported by Microsoft only for customers who PAY A FEE. As a result,
Microsoft releases patches for these operating systems only to people who have Premier support contracts with the company.
However, as was reported on the Patch Management blog by Eric Schultze of patch-management vendor
Shavlik.com, Microsoft has provided a fix for this problem to customers who pay for NT patches.
I hope this helps y'all out.
P. S. By the way, Livingston's free newsletter is always full of goodies.

Personally, I am already in touch with both Brian Livingston and Eric Schultze. I can recommend the WindowsSecrets newsletter.
The Windows NT patches are available for both NT Workstation and NT Server, but ONLY for Microsoft customers with a Premier Support contract AND a CSA Agreement.
