    "Microsoft is gearing up to release 12 security bulletins Tuesday that will include patches for critical vulnerabilities in Office, Windows, Internet Explorer, VBScript, JScript and Visual Basic. The updates, which will come in Microsoft's monthly Patch Tuesday release, February 12, 2008."

    "The critical vulnerabilities all cause remote code execution problems. That means if the flaw is exploited, a hacker could remotely control the infected machine. The vulnerabilities rated important also cause remote code execution, which generally garners a critical rating."

    Are you calling me a liar?

    Just kidding. You don't happen to have SP3 installed, do you?

    Try again. Do you have automatic updates on? You should probably check the logs to see if you already received them (from M$ site).

    http://www.news.com/8301-10789_3-987...g=2547-1_3-0-5 - they were released and I got the Malicious tool thingy and Outlook 2007 spam filter updates so...

    ...flash bios, pish floppy and reformat.

    "We are targeting 1H 2008 for the release of XP SP3 RTM, though our timing will always be based on customer feedback as a first priority," says a Microsoft representative.
