Security Alert 961040 and SQL Server 2000 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Further to the Microsoft security alert 961040 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/961040)

    The official Microsoft Security alert suggestions a work-around of disabling the strored procedure in question (sp_replwritetovarbin).

    The issue is that it doesn't seem like a fix is going to be issued for SQL Server 2000 and I can't disable this stored procedure because we have lots of SQL Server 2000, Transactional Replication. 

    Does anyone know of a longer term solution for SQL Server 2000 apart from upgrading to SQL Server 2008?
