Why was this security update reoffered on June 19, 2008?

Microsoft is reoffering the updates addressed in Microsoft Security Bulletin
MS08-030 - Vulnerability in Bluetooth Stack Could Allow Remote Code
Execution (951376) because of issues affecting the Windows XP Service Pack 2
and Windows XP Service Pack 3 update. The Windows XP Service Pack 2 and
Windows XP Service Pack 3 update offered in Microsoft Security Bulletin
MS08-030 did not fully address the vulnerability discussed in the security
bulletin. All other versions of the security update provide protection
against the issues discussed in the security bulletin.

The purpose of reissuing this bulletin is to provide the updated version of
the security update affecting Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows XP
Service Pack 3. Customers who are running Windows XP Service Pack 2 and
Windows XP Service Pack 3 should download and deploy this new security
update. Customers running Windows XP Professional x64 Edition and Windows XP
Professional x64 Edition Service Pack 2 and all supported versions of
Windows Vista who have already applied these original security updates do
not need to take any further action. The updated versions of the affected
security updates will be made available through all of the same distribution
channels as the original security updates, including Automatic Updates,
Windows Update and Windows Server Update Services.
