Update: MS10-015 security update re-released with new d

Hi,

I am writing to let you know that we have revised the installation packages for MS10-015 with new logic that prevents the security update from being installed on systems if certain abnormal conditions exist. Such conditions could be the result of an infection with a computer virus such as the Alureon rootkit. If these conditions are detected, the update will not be installed and the result will be a standard Windows Update error. If a user receives this error, they should go to the following landing page for additional help:

http://www.microsoft.com/security/updates/015

At this time, we have resumed offering the update to all affected systems via Automatic Updates.

We have also released a Microsoft Fix It as a standalone scanning tool that reports on the compatibility of a system with the MS10-015 update. The scanning tool can also be deployed through enterprise deployment systems allowing administrators to detect compatibility with the update before deploying broadly. The Fix It and deployment information are available at Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 980966.

Customers who believe they have experienced a restart issue after installing MS10-015, are encouraged to visit our Customer Service and Support page at https://consumersecuritysupport.microsoft.com or call 1-866-PCSafety (1-866-727-2338). International customers can find local support contact numbers here: http://support.microsoft.com/common/international.aspx.

Thanks,

Jerry Bryant
Sr. Security Communications Manager Lead

I've fixed 5 computers in the last week with Alureon. What a nice piece of work there. It eats McAfee and Norton for breakfast and one version of it killed the Malwarebytes process when it sees it start. So far MSE updates fast enough to stay ahead but even it has trouble removing it requiring several passes and restarts.

Better solution would be having the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal tool that comes with every patch Tuesday run first, remove the infection then install the update, that was its whole purpose from the beginning, remove viruses preventing some Windows Updates then install the Updates
