The problem is that there are still loads of NT4 users out there and it runs lots of websites. Netcraft thinks that 1.1 percent of web-facing hostnames continued to run NT4 which is about 60 million sites. Security firm eEye Digital Security complained to the BugTraq vulnerability mailing list here that Vole was being petty about releasing the patch. It claimed that Microsoft had created a private patch for customers who have paid for extended Windows NT 4.0 support, it just was not giving it out generally because it wanted people to stop using NT4.
