>> The company acknowledged the vulnerability last week and is moving with uncharacteristic speed in issuing a fix for the problem.<<
This bug was reported to Microsoft in 2008 (http://www.eweek.com/c/a/Security/Was-Microsoft-Slow-to-Patch-Video-ActiveX-Vulnerability-130458) . The first *known* exploit in the wild occurred over a month ago.
Microsoft has shown there normal speed in fixing this, which is why their security record remains abysmal compared to other operating systems.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
