Out of Band Release Re: Microsoft Security Advisory 2286198

On Monday, August 2, 2010, Microsoft is planning to release a security update to address the vulnerability discussed in Security Advisory 2286198.

As indicated by Christopher Budd in the MSRC Blog:
"We are releasing the bulletin as we've completed the required testing and the update has achieved the appropriate quality bar for broad distribution to customers. Additionally, we're able to confirm that, in the past few days, we've seen an increase in attempts to exploit the vulnerability. We firmly believe that releasing the update out of band is the best thing to do to help protect our customers."
Details about the threat are available in the MMPC Blog at Stuxnet, malicious .LNKs, ...and then there was Sality.
