Microsoft Re-Releases 'Blue Screen Of Death' Patch

Microsoft today re-released a security update that had crashed customers' PCs and crippled the machines with endless reboots, saying that the revised patch is now safe to install.

The revamped MS13-036 update - first issued April 9, but pulled three days later from distribution - "resolves issues some customers experienced," said Microsoft spokesman Dustin Childs in an email Tuesday.

"The new update, KB2840149, still addresses the Moderate security issue described in MS13-036, and should not cause these [rebooting] issues," Childs added in a post to the Microsoft Security Response Center blog.

Two weeks ago, Microsoft yanked one of the two patches comprising MS13-036 from the Windows Update service as reports spread that the fix was generating the notorious "Blue Screen of Death" (BSOD) error message and paralyzing PCs with repeated reboots.
