Applying the Q316333 patch

Our SQL server 7.0 version is:
 Microsoft SQL Server 7.00 - 7.00.623 (Intel X86) Nov 27 1998 22:20:07 Copyright (c) 1988-1998 Microsoft Corporation Standard Edition on Windows NT 4.0 (Build 1381: Service Pack 6)
and we need to apply the recently released patch Q316333. Do we need to have SP4 by all means before we install this patch? Your help on this would be highly appreciated.

I'm confused. That Q article corresponds to the SQL Server 2000 SP2 security hotfix. There isn't an SP4 released for SQL Server 2000 and you can NOT apply this to your 7.0 environment. For SQL Server 7.0, you should be on SP4 and then apply any security rollups if necessary on your system. I would suggest getting a test server and testing your applications with SP4 before applying it in your environment.
