This is a non-security patch, so there is no associated vulnerability.
There are 2 KB's assocaited with MSWU-538. 970553 is for XP 32bit SP2 and SP3. 972189 is for 2003 and XP x64. i just tested downloading the patch in the console and it worked. try viewing the patch in patch view and see if you can download it from there.
Some times I get a 401 error when manually download in the browser but on the 3rd try it works. Here is a direct link to the patch:
Today the direct MS link worked; it's the same link that was prompting for a password yesterday. NetChk failed today on one attempt, then worked on another attempt. My guess is there's some sort of load balancing sending me to different servers, some working, some broken. Anyway, I've got the patch and it seems to have applied ok. Thanks.
I also experienced the same behavior. Glad you were able to get a copy!
