Microsoft re-releases Blue Screen of Death fix | Tech News on ZDNet

Microsoft is re-releasing the patch that caused Windows systems to crash in February with a Blue Screen of Death.

The software maker has re-written the installation package for the update, MS10-015, and will push it out automatically to users. It has written logic into the update to prevent the fix from being installed if the Alureon rootkit is present, it said in a Microsoft Security Response Center statement on Tuesday.

The Alureon rootkit, which makes changes to the operating system kernel, caused the February crashes, according to Microsoft.
