Microsoft has consolidated three of its security tools--SQL Server 2000 SQL Scan, SQL Check, and SQL Critical Update--into one download, the SQL Critical Update Kit. The kit also includes a Systems Management Server (SMS) deployment tool and the Servpriv.exe utility. The SQL Server 2000 security tools help update editions of SQL Server 2000 and Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine 2000 (MSDE 2000) that are vulnerable to the SQL Slammer worm. The tools scan instances of SQL Server 2000 and MSDE 2000 to help detect vulnerabilities to Slammer, then apply updates to the affected files. You can download the SQL Critical Update Kit at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=9552D43B-04EB-4AF9-9E24-6CDE4D933600&displaylang=en .
