New Security Patch for Windows Media Player.
 
Dunno how important this security hole is. MS says the patch is necessary. It undoubtedly re-installs the "snitch" or "special pipeline to Spam" ware that's difficult to remove from WMP v7.1. As always, it's your choice! Please see: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/tre...n/MS02-032.asp . Head's up is courtesy of OCer's Australia.

Edit. Looks like the EULA for this security patch is an ugmo of a doozy. For the delightful details, please see the news item titled "Microsoft Media Player "Security Patch" Changes EULA Big Time" on http://slashdot.org . Of Sat, 29 June @ 01:23 PM.
