Product Updates

C Runtime Denial of Service Fix
Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise Edition includes the Microsoft C runtime, which contains a static buffer overrun that potentially could be exploited as a denial of service attack on the Web or on other servers.
T-SQL Debugger Buffer Overrun Fix
Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise contains a Microsoft Visual Basic feature for debugging T-SQL. This feature contains a problem that could cause a buffer overrun. Since the default installation of the Debugger object allows anyone to start the debugger and run as the logged on interactive user, this bug potentially could be exploited with malicious intentions.

The Visual C++ 6.0 Processor Pack provides intrinsic support for enhanced instruction sets supported by Intel and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) processors. The instructions sets supported are Intel's Pentium III new instruction sets (Streaming SIMD Extensions [SSE]) and Intel's Pentium 4 new instruction sets (Streaming SIMD Extensions 2 [SSE2]), as well as AMD's 3DNow! instruction sets. The Processor Pack is available as a download.
