The issue affects Microsoft Security Bulletin MS02-071, which fixed what Microsoft called an "Important" security vulnerability allowing privilege elevation in Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
There were no reported problems with the patches for Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
"Subsequent to the release of this bulletin it was determined that the patch for Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 machines introduced an error that may, under certain configurations, cause NT 4.0 to fail," Microsoft wrote in an update to the bulletin on Monday. "Microsoft is investigating this issue and will shortly release an updated patch for Windows NT 4.0."
