Surely they could have dumped the user accounts from AD (like the SAM under NT) and crack all the accounts on a remote machine. Then maybe it wouldn't have even been noticed. And if the POS software was secure, it should not matter if someone downloaded the source code.

Thanks for the info. I assume you could exact the capicom.dll as if you were going to slipstream SP2 into office 2007.

Actually I was referring to KB967723.

And interestingly enough, the patch for windows 2003 (64bit) installs on XP (64 bit) but it's download is not referenced from the KB. And apparently MS has said they won't provide a patch for XP (either 64 or 32).

"not technically feasible" to patch at least XP 64 bit which was release after 2003 32-bit server and before 2003 server 64-bit. I thought the code base was really similar. Especially since it uses the same Service Pack (WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB914961-SP2-x64-ENU.exe)

General Availability Dates from Microsoft

Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition (32-bit x86) 5/28/2003
Windows XP Professional x64 Edition 4/24/2005
Windows Server 2003, Standard x64 Edition 5/28/2005

This cannot be anything less than a ploy to kill XP (and 2000 server) and bring on the new era of Windows Play Skool Edition (Windows Visa 2009 aka Windows 7)
