Re: List of latest Windows XP patches released?

I see no value in patching windows for vulnerabilities if the system isn't connected to the internet and thus isn't vulnerable. The only patches worthy are functional ones like add support for bluray or exfat. I also see no point in CYA since nobody would agree that running XP is covered by any str...

Do you want to include POSReady updates? No. Just standard patches that were released. I do not think that such a list exist. Most people here (and at MSFN) likely use the POSReady updates. There is really no reason not to do so (unless we are talking about a specialized, critical system). You coul...

If it's offline, then a bare SP3 should be enough, maybe with a few selected KB if they are needed.
I decided to go with this: http://www.syssel.net/hoefs/index.php?lang=en
