Achilles' heels? German Internet security experts said they found "two flaws" within the anxiously awaited security update for Microsoft's Windows XP operating system. But a spokesman for Chairman Bill Gates' firm insists that the new Service Pack 2 (SP2) patches are safe and sound, offering downright "innovations." However, the Redmond, Wash.-based software leviathan has warned customers that the security update could interfere with nearly 50 programs. The update could affect connections to videogames such as Electronic Arts' Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2, Epic Games' Unreal Tournament 2003 and Activision's Star Trek StarFleet Command III 1.0. Beyond the world of make-believe car thieves and interstellar laser battles, affected applications could include Symantec Corporate AntiVirus 9.0 and Microsoft Operations Manager 2000 SP1 among others, according to a list provided by Microsoft. Nonetheless, the spokesman maintained: "We continue to encourage customers to review and install Windows XP SP2." He added that the firm pumps funds into new technology to combat hackers and that newest evil, spyware.
