MS08-67 Exploit now in the wild!

We blitzed to update all of our client's servers as well as our own:
Microsoft has released information indicating that an exploit is now in the wild:

Talk about a fast turn around time on the release of the patch to an exploit being found.

The most vulnerable time in the whole patching cycle is the time between the release of the patch and its installation on our servers.


Because as soon as the patch is released the "bad guys" are downloading the patch and reverse engineering it to figure out how to get to the exploit!

So, if your client's servers are not patched yet, better get to it! 8*O
