A Patch Tuesday that Lives Up to Its Name

Patch Tuesday isn't the most accurate way to describe the second Tuesday of every month; it should be called "Patches" Tuesday since there's always more than one fix.

But this week it actually lives up to its name, as only one repair is scheduled for release. This critical patch fixes a remote code flaw in Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003 and XP. So if you have a golf date tomorrow, you may be able to keep it!
