Build 2469 released by Windows XP
The new version is build 2469.
In the new version, the Network properties, power management, boot time, setup, upgrading Windows 98/ME and security have all been improved. Since a tester/hacker had announced his login data and this spread very quickly via Messenger and IRC, not only beta testers got the benefit of the new version yesterday. Thousands of others apparently downloaded the new build yesterday. Allegedly the access interface Passport had a leak, so that it was possible to convert Passport accounts into beta accounts. 7 hours after the new version was released, the Microsoft servers collapsed. Microsoft is currently busy locking the affected accounts. Microsoft can no longer prevent the new version from spreading across the entire Internet in a short time.
