Windows XP Security Patch: Unchecked Buffer in UPnP can lead to system compromise

This update resolves the “Unchecked Buffer in Universal Plug and Play Can Lead to System Compromise” security vulnerability in Windows XP. Download now to prevent a malicious user from compromising your computer, or using it to interfere with another computer's operation. The vulnerability results because the Windows XP Universal Plug and Play feature does not correctly validate inputs before using them. The patch also eliminates the vulnerability discussed in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS01-054.


I downloaded this and double-clicked it to run the install and noticed it said to update my System Recovery Disk....ummm...I don't have a System Recovery Disk to begin with....so I guess my question is how do I make one? and how do I update it? I have done some digging on my own but can't seem to find an answer to it. Any help would be appreciated. Gonna hold off on the patch until I get this done I guess.

Go ahead and install the patch. When you're done, open "backup" and select "advanced mode." Go to the pull-down menu "tools" and select "ASR Wizard" to create your system recovery disk.

Want to make a clarification there, Lonman. ASR Wizard works for XP Pro Edition ONLY

how come the patch didn't ask me for this?

I am running Windows XP Pro, and it just extracted and installed and I rebooted. No system recovery thing.

Am I missing out on something?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
