Microsoft issued an important collection of security fixes for Windows 2000

by Nikola Strahija on February 2nd, 2002 The release of the 17MB downloadable Windows 2000 Security Rollup Package (SRP1) comes as Microsoft steps up its emphasis on security. In an e-mail to Microsoft's 47,000 employees earlier this month, Chairman Bill Gates called for putting security ahead of adding new features to products.


Several denial-of-service and buffer-overflow patches, telnet and file-transfer protocol tweaks and authentication-error repaired in that issue.

SRP1 is a cumulative collection of security fixes released since Microsoft issued Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 in May. Service packs are collections of fixes and enhancements periodically released for Windows. Service Pack 3 for Windows 2000 is currently in beta testing.
