    • (December 20, 2010) Microsoft security bulletin MS10-061 version 2 for Windows XP SP2 and Windows 2000 is available for download in LANDesk content. This security update resolves a publicly disclosed vulnerability in the Print Spooler service. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if an attacker sends a specially crafted print request to a vulnerable system that has a print spooler interface exposed over RPC. By default, printers are not shared on any currently supported Windows operating system.



    • Important note: Microsoft has discontinued general support for Windows 2000 and Windows XP SP2. Extended service contracts are available and are required to access the patches necessary to remediate these vulnerabilities. These patches are not provided by LANDesk and can only be downloaded from Microsoft with a valid extended service contract. Customers with access to the patches through their extended support contracts will need to manually copy the patches to the \patch directory on the LANDesk core server in order to perform remediation for detected vulnerabilities.
