Reason for Major Revision, V2.0 October 22, 2003:
=================================================
Subsequent to the release of this bulletin and the associated
patches, a compatibility problem with some third party
software has been identified with a set of language specific
versions of the Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 patch. This problem
is unrelated to the security vulnerability discussed in this
bulletin. Customers who have applied the patch are protected
against the vulnerability discussed in this bulletin.

Microsoft has developed a fix for this issue and is
re-releasing this bulletin to reflect the new updated patches.
The compatibility problems only affect the language versions
of the patch listed within the bulletin and only those versions
of the patch are being re-released. Other language versions of
this patch are not affected and are not being re-released.
Please note that the new security patches support both the
Setup switches originally documented in this bulletin as well
as a set of new Setup switches that are document in the
Installation Information Section of this bulletin.
Additionally, the updated language versions support Windows
2000 Service Pack 2, Windows 2000 Service Pack 3, and
Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 in a single security patch.
