Applications Affected by Windows XP Service Pack 2

We’ve published a Knowledge Base article about known applications that are affected by the recently released Windows XP Service Pack 2. KB article 842242 contains all of the details. Most of the applications and games on the list need to have some ports manually opened on the new Windows Firewall. Although this may seem like a bad thing, this is actually a good thing, since the firewall is successfully blocking unknown incoming connections…the desired behavior for a secure system.
