I tried to download Q323172i.exe for Windows NT 4 SP6a, but apparently it was removed.

A Google search for Q323172i.exe led me to this page:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323172

I tried to download Q323172i.exe for Windows NT 4 SP6a via that page, but when I click on the download link, it leads me to a download page for a different update (Q815021i.EXE) for a different vulnerability. Does anyone know if there is a logical/legitimate reason why Q323172i.exe for Windows NT 4 SP6a was removed?

Probably because online demand for Windows NT 4.0 no longer warrants keeping Q323172i.exe patch online. If you still need this patch, it can be found on other sites such as this one: http://am.net/lib/to...nt/Q323172i.exe

 

Do a search for Q323172i.exe referencing to Windows NT 4.0 and you'll find the correct patch for that OS. :)

 

The size of the file is 268 KB and has a Digital Signature timestamp of 2002-07-29 11:23:23. The date of the file, if uploaded on other websites for historical purposes, will eventually have a later timestamp as it is uploaded onto their servers, yet the file size and original Digital Signature timestamp are retained.

 

I hope that this helps.

Thanks for the suggestions. I already had the update (thanks to the Wayback Machine), but was wondering if there was a good reason that Microsoft removed it. I suspect that the update is obsolete or (more likely) was later found to cause more problems than it solves. I don't believe that it was removed because Windows NT 4.0 is an old and unsupported OS since almost all of the other updates are still available (if you know exactly where to look). In addition, the version of this update for Windows ME (323172usam.exe) is still available for download. There's probably no way to find out why Q323172i.exe was removed, so I'm just going to put it in the "Possibly_obsolete" directory and move on. Phil
