Microsoft Corp. plans to announce as early as next week that it is ready to ship a Windows 2000 Update Rollup, the final security patch for the 5-year-old operating system.


The Update Rollup, which replaces Windows 2000 SP5 (Service Pack 5), is a cumulative set of hot fixes, security patches and critical updates packaged together for easy deployment.


“The [quality assurance] tests are done, and it’s ready to go. An announcement is imminent,” a Microsoft source told Ziff Davis Internet News.


An announcement could coincide with the company’s TechEd conference, scheduled for Orlando, Fla., next week.


The Update Rollup will contain all security-related updates produced for Windows 2000 between the time SP4 was released and the date the update ships. It will also feature a small number of important, non-security updates.
