Corrected URL in Security Bulletin MS99-052

The following is a Security  Bulletin from the Microsoft Product Security
Notification Service.

Please do not  reply to this message,  as it was sent  from an unattended

Yesterday, we released Microsoft Security Bulletin MS99-052, discussing the
"Legacy Credential Caching" vulnerability in Windows 95 and 98.  The
bulletin provided URLs from which to download the patch.   However, due to a
human error, the patch that was loaded onto the download site was not the
correct patch.  Instead, a copy of the previously-released patch for the
"File Access URL" vulnerability propagated to the URLs.  (For more
information on the "File Access URL" vulnerability, see
http://www.microsoft.com/Security/Bulletins/ms99-049.asp).  We have updated
the bulletin, at http://www.microsoft.com/Security/Bulletins/ms99-052.asp,
and ensured that the correct URL information is now provided there.

We have no reports of any customers suffering ill effects from installing
the "File Access URL" patch.  (In fact, there's no reason not to install it,
as it was designed for Windows 95 and 98 and is a recommended patch).
However, we suggest that customers who installed it visit the updated
bulletin and ensure that they also install the "Legacy Credential Caching"
patch as well.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused by this error, and would like
to thank the customers who alerted us to the problem.  Sincerely,

The Microsoft Security Response Team
