Microsoft created  MS14-051 update for Windows 2000.

 

The file names are

IE6.0sp1-KB2976627-Windows2000-x86-ENU_100ECA9B3FAA7F61465494C7FD1DF89BF155291A.exe

and

IE5.01sp4-KB2976627-Windows2000sp4-x86-ENU_E09271EBE68E9BE57A5910984EFCBD84802D4790.exe

 

Can we get them from microsoft download ?

 

 

IE6 for XP can be gotten from the following link.

 

WindowsXP-KB2976627-x86-Embedded-ENU_28BDB1E097CF7F3258ACCB44CE673949A339EBBE.exe

They'll likely release another Security Updates ISO within a few days and the files in question will be included in that. Still kinda bizarre that they're releasing bits and pieces of updates for 2000.

 

The ISO should be linked on this page when it's released - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/913086

 

Not sure how it's not linked there yet, but majorgeeks seems to have the file - http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/microsoft_security_releases_iso_image.html

Well, doesn't look like the updates surfaced in that iso either. Kinda weird since they list them in the kb article. I wonder if they're only downloadable for special contracted-support situations, like governments or large corporations. Like what they did with NT4 'SP7'. Or perhaps it's only available through WSUS, and not any other way. I'm going to investigate that possibility and see what I come up with.

I think they do it through WSUS but you won't find anything without direct links leaked by someone.

 

2 years ago I managed to find a WSUS list of direct URLs to other post-EOL updates but they were already dead. It seems that those updates are available to download only for a short period of time.

 

The links at that time looked like this:

 

http://download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/csa/secu/2010/12/windows2000-kb2347290-v2-x86-custom-enu_8abd494904bbcd03fc189f5c4991ecf398a054dc.exe (no longer working)

I found it here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=15901

 

After extracting the files with WinRAR I can see this update is from August 17, 2010. I am not near a 2000 machine but the file would likely work on Windows 2000, or you could extract the files to the appropriate directory, i.e. system or system32 etc.
