Am told I have a critical MS06-061 vulnerability and when I look at updates for Win XP I find this version needs patching:

Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 running Microsoft XML Core Services 2.5

However I cannot find anywhere that tells me I have XML Core Services 2.5 and do not even know what they are. Can advise?

Microsoft Office 2003 has/uses XML. So if you have Office 2003 installed, you'll be notified of MSXML updates. There may be other applications that use/have XML, but I only know about this one.

My version of XP is 2002 SP2 - seems to me I have seen that this version is vulnerable to many things. Have to study the site just sent me to see if I can fully understand it.
