Microsoft has admitted that it sent a Vista patch to the wrong users. The company has also updated the preview release of Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) to a small group of testers.

The update, which is described in the support document KB935509, was one of three prerequisites for SP1 unveiled Tuesday, and was supposed to end up only on Vista Enterprise and Vista Ultimate machines, since it targeted BitLocker, the full-drive encryption technology bundled with those premium versions of the operating system. Instead, the update was also offered to PCs running Vista Home Basic and Home Premium.
