    "However, Microsoft notes that attackers who successfully exploited the
    vulnerability would only gain the privilege level of the current user.
    For nonadministrative users, that could limit the damage caused on
    exploited systems, Microsoft says."

    I find that *so* comforting...

    MS should add a line to their EULA that says "Thank you for paying for
    the privilege of beta testing this Microsoft product. Your comments
    would have helped to improve the product for future users but we will be
    dropping support for it before that can happen."
