Anyone know a download link for windows-kb890830-v3.8.exe (June 2010)

8 posts in this topic

I am after the very specific version of KB890830 from June 2010 since this is the last official version to support Windows 2000 since the end-of-life deadline.

I am aware I can download the current and newer one (from the links I have included below). I am also aware for all intents and purposes it should continue to work on Windows2000 (even if not officially supported).

However my request still remains: Does anybody know of a download link for the June 2010 release?

Maybe you don't know the link but you have a private copy of the EXE but are unwilling or unable to send it, this is ok, you can still assist me. Could you please provide a MD5 or SHA1 checksum of the file you have. You may consider the following sites reputable locations to obtain the tool if you do not already have it http://www.etree.org/md5com.html and http://lists.gnupg.org/pipermail/gnupg-announce/2004q4/000184.html for Windows. Maybe you have a Linux system near by all systems installed within the past 8 years have one or both checksum utilities installed.

Even if you see someone post their MD5 or SHA1 already to this thread please consider doing the same, if its not too much trouble.

With enough independant reports this will allow me to obtain a copy of the EXE from a less reputable source than microsoft.com and have some confidence there is not some great conspiracy to infect me with malware with a trojaned copy.

Thank you in advance.

Please don't respond with any of the following URLs (I'm obviously already aware of those and can not find any way to nagivate to releases from a few months ago) :

You really should be using Microsoft Update Catalog to get your updates (outside of the other one I pointed you to). This will net all updates they posted publicly which may or may not show on your offline MBSA scan. You can download this update in question from there (I just checked).

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Home.aspx

Downloaded File Name: X86-all-windows-kb890830-v3.8_a05d6e916515124e6c2243eb687d4baeb6ecc035.exe

MD5: 582C756F06C4C9C6858AAE4F9D9E8DA4

SHA1: A05D6E916515124E6C2243EB687D4BAEB6ECC035

The stuff on the end of the file name is the SHA1 value Microsoft reports.

When you load the site, you'll be presented with a search box, where you can type keywords for whatever you are looking for. For example, to find this update, I typed "Windows 2000 890830". For a generic search, type "Windows 2000" and then you can click on the returned columns to sort the result by that column. Clicking on "Last Updated" will likely be useful since this will return the updates in chronological order (newest first).

(I should mention you need to use IE to access this site)

Why not just check the digital signature?

I'd like to know how to do this as well. Would come in handy in future.

I guess there is a tool EXE I can run, with the target/suspect EXE to verify with some kind of X.509 security certificate.

Also does the digital signature cover all bytes of the EXE file, maybe I can test it. So if I were to add bytes to the end would it detect that change. As some digital signature systems only cover certain sections of the EXE file, like the code/text/data/bss but not all of it.

Maybe you know if webpage explaining how verification maybe performed.

To check a digital signature just right click, properties, digital signatures, details, This digital signature is OK or This digital signature is not valid.
