Microsoft re-issues security bulletins MS03–024 and -025?

In my inbox this morning are two security bulletins originally issued by Microsoft on July 9th. I cannot find anything in the body of the message or the linked bulletins that indicate why these were re-issued, whether the original patch had a flaw that required a patched-patch, or whether Microsoft was sending these out based on reports of ISPs shutting down sites yesterday based on a DDOS attack. No clue. Here are the links, patch if you haven’t:

It’s also worthwhile to run Windows Update regularly, and review the basic security precautions Microsoft recommends at http://www.microsoft.com/security.
