I performed a Vunerability Assessment with a Database Appliance named Fortidb, to lock down one of our important sqlserver2000 with SP4, running on Windows 2000 server, it generated a report with many critical and major warnings related to PUBLIC role and Guest User.
the most recommended problems resolutions are to apply the MS patch Q316333 another patch released with MS02-061 !! in addition to remove public from certain Store procedures even in MSDB database!
bearing in mind that SQL2000 SP4 is already applied which should contains these 2 very old patches
Please advice if it's really important and necessary to apply the mentioned old patches ( although I couldn't find them on microsoft website) or to manually remove public in the places the report has recommended in the attach document?!
thank you in advance.
