Hello,

Christopher Budd here.  Very quickly, I wanted to let people know that we just posted Microsoft Security Advisory (927709) that talks about public proof of concept code published on an issue in the WMI Object Broker ActiveX control. We are aware of the possibility of limited attacks that are attempting to use the reported vulnerability.

We're tracking this issue through our Software Security Incident Response Process and we have information in the advisory as far as steps customers can take to protect themselves.

As always, we'll continue to monitor the situation and provide updates to the advisory should the situation change or we become aware of new information.

Thanks.

Christopher
