With just two days to go before the expiration of mainstream support for Microsoft's Windows 2000 operating system, the software giant has provided an update rollup with more than 50 security patches and system reliability fixes.
The update rollup, which replaces Windows 2000 SP5 (Service Pack 5), ships as a high-priority update on the Windows Update site, where it will be listed in the "Critical and Service Packs" category. In a security advisory posted Tuesday, Microsoft Corp. said the rollup is applicable to Windows 2000 client and server releases and requires the prior installation of SP4.
