A critical vulnerability affecting Microsoft Windows 2000 Server will remain unfixed until Microsoft re-releases a patch for it, the company said on Friday.
A patch for the hole, which could allow an attacker to take control of a system running Windows Media Services, was released during Patch Tuesday last week. However, Microsoft pulled the patch this week because it failed to work.
“We pulled the update because it was determined that it did not address the underlying vulnerability,” Microsoft said in a statement. “We cannot give a specific day yet, but we are planning to re-release the update next week. That is our first priority right now. After that, we will be able to investigate the issue further.”
Jerry Bryant, group manager of response communications for the Microsoft Security Response Center, notified customers in a blog post on Wednesday that the security update for MS10-025 was being withdrawn.
