    I'm with MS on that one. It'd be in everyone's interest if the person who
    discovered the bug gave MS a headstart over the people who might want to
    exploit it.

    "There are no known work-arounds, and Microsoft did not immediately respond
    to questions about its plans for the vulnerability."

    Obviously Microsoft has been informed but probably due to corporate policies
    and yet missing authorization from the PHBs, no response yet, as usual.
    I am certain they are working on a fix but ...
