ZDNet's PCWeek Online reports that the first patch to the new OS has been released, 3 weeks before the official retail release of the actual OS.
The patch, released by Microsoft on Wednesday, repairs two different security bugs in Microsoft Index Server, the more egregious of which allows hackers to view files stored on a target Web server. Index Server is an add-on to Windows NT 4.0 and is built into Windows 2000 (in the form of Indexing Services). Index Server provides developers with Active Scripting and query-management capabilities.
