Microsoft has been released its security updates on 16th April. But this updates are not for the Microsoft users whose systems are compromised with virus called Rootkit. Because some of Microsoft updates were released in February this year, which crash the machines infected by Roolkit virus and user tried to install past updates that made it impossible to use their computers.

That is why Microsoft latest path will not work on infected machines because it wants their user’s trust to download security updates that will never crash their systems.

Microsoft latest updates first do scan of system to ensure that the system has not been infected by Rootkit virus. If it has then it will refuse to install security patch. Rootkit is malware which hides itself in a OS and it is difficult to detect. After being hide itself it monitors web traffic and start stealing of user’s information like credit card number, user’s entered passwords, user’s names. It can also work for back door hackers as it works in background.

Microsoft security patch is designed not to install on infected machines.

Microsoft fails to fix this malware problem but it made suggestion for removal of malware on computers by using a malware removal tool or to use third party software like AVG, McAfee, Trend Micro, Avira.

Microsoft is said in its security bulletin

“Abnormal conditions” would prevent XP users applying the updates.

“These abnormal conditions on a system could be the result of an infection with a computer virus that modifies some operating system files, which renders the infected computer incompatible with the kernel update,”

Microsoft updates can be installed on machine if user cleaned his system from RootKit virus.
