MS06-049 for Windows 2000 SP4 causes data lost.

From Slashbot:
“It looks like there is a problem with the recently released MS06-049 / KB920958 patch. If you have compression activated on any folder, then the compressed data is at risk from corruption. New files that are close to a multiple of 4K in size will have their last 4,000 bytes or so overwritten with 0xDF. Although this problem has been reported to Microsoft, as yet there appears to have been no official announcement. ”

It’s true, Microsoft have told me the same thing.
