    From the above article:

    The first thing is that you should always patch your system with the latest security updates, no matter when
    they are released. The second thing is that the pattern seen with most Microsoft patches is still holding true.
    Once a patch is released, exploit attempts against it start to rise.

    -------

    If you have properly maintained your system this is a non-issue.
