Microsoft has to clean up after patch Tuesday

angry tapir writes "After releasing its largest-ever group of security patches two weeks ago, Microsoft has done a little cleaning up. Over the past few days, the company has re-released two security updates and issued a workaround for a Windows CryptoAPI patch that caused Microsoft's own instant-messaging server to crash. Another buggy patch fixed over the past few days was the MS09-043 Office update, first released back in August. This was apparently misconfigured so that customers who use Microsoft update tools such as Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) were given bad scan results."
