    Hello,

    Microsoft Security Bulletin MS02-069
    Flaw in Microsoft VM Could Enable System Compromise (810030)
    Originally posted: December 11, 2002

    From today (at least in French) the VM to d/l is about
    100 ko bigger.

    No informations nowhere about it.

    Is it the same for other languages ?

    Not the first time M$ adds something without any warning or documentation in a product.

    Any info ?

    TIA,

    Hello Pieter,

    No, it is not ;)

    What I mean is that the size from de VM has changed from yesterday and nothing is mentionned in this article "fromMicrosoft Security Bulletin MS02-069

    If M$ modified the VM it sould at least update the info.
    I don't like to see something especially from Mickeysoft VM
    without saying anything to the customers.

    It's a pity I am compelled to run it instead of SUN's :'(

    Best regards,

    Hi JacK,

    Sorry I misunderstood. :oops:
    You want to know what the extra 100 kb is for?
    Bloat? :D
    Or have they found a solution for a problem they didn't bother to tell us about?
    I'm not getting an offer to renew it on Windows update. o_O

    Regards,

    Pieter
