Some of you will have noticed some vista patches coming through today.

AMD Patch for ATI

Potential vulnerability in the CATALYST installer component.

Optional

NOTE: The readers are reporting the AMD patch also applies to XP, likewise 933360.

Also a reboot required, but then it would be unusual if it didn't.

A reader (thanks Dan) also mentioned this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/894199/en-us. which seems to be a good synopsis of the patches deployed.  Might be a good spot to check patch Tuesday stuff.

 

Cheers
