OK so I guess I now have to withdraw my premature criticism where I said that it seemed "highly suspicious" that Microsoft found their huge IE flaw a couple of short weeks after the "EOL" for XP. But it looks like MS is doing right, even by XP users, and have released the fix to them.

If nothing else, I'd say that this shows the intense damage that this bug could do etc. If you haven't already, patch up folks!
