Information about the re-release version of security update 951376 for all supported 32-bit editions of Windows XP (June 19, 2008)
Microsoft Security Bulletin MS08-030 has been re-released to re-offer the security update to customers who are running a 32-bit edition of Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) or Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3). The Windows XP SP2 and Windows XP SP3 update that was offered in the security bulletin did not fully address the vulnerability that was discussed in the security bulletin. All other versions of the security update provide protection against the issues that were discussed in the security bulletin.
The purpose of reissuing this bulletin is to provide the updated version of the security update that affects Windows XP SP2 and Windows XP SP3. Customers who are running Windows XP SP2 and Windows XP SP3 should download and deploy this new security update.
Customers who are running Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Service Pack 2, and all supported versions of Windows Vista and who have already applied these original security updates do not have to take any additional action.
The updated versions of the affected security updates will be made available through the same distribution channels as the original security updates. These distribution channels include Automatic Updates, Windows Update, and Windows Server Update Services.
