Windows Server Patch


Does anyone know where to find the latest patch for Windows 2k Servers as well as XP pc's. I'm referencing the Lovscan Worm thats running around.

They said there is a new variate running around, and I went to see if there is a patch, but I'm getting DNS errors while trying to get the www.microsoft.com site.

Anyone else having this issue, or know if there is a patch newer than the one floating out there, or if that's all ya need?

It works for me.

I was there, but it only will allow me to download SP4 and IE6, SP1. and well I don't really want to install SP4 remotely. Kinda scary.

Maybe there's another option

Both microsoft.com and windowsupdate.com will not resolve for me (from Tulsa, OK.) Anyone still able to reach either of these sites? Luckily, I've already patched.

I thought the ddos attack wasn't supposed to start until Saturday...

I'm in OKC, OK so maybe it's regional.

Typically if microsoft.com isnt working, microsoft.net is (Different server, same site). Thats what I had to do to grab some updates earlier this week.

I was able to get in to patch both an XP and 2003 Server with no issues, I am in the midwest.
