On the heels of the out-of-band patch announcement by Microsoft yesterday, a new security advisory (KB979682) has been posted by Microsoft.  Microsoft is currently researching reports of a vulnerability in the Window kernel.  It is important to wait for Microsoft’s research findings before jumping any conclusions on this report.  We have seen in the past few months of claimed zero-day vulnerabilities that were not software vulnerabilities.

Although, keep an eye on the security advisory to see if Microsoft acknowledges the claims and provides details and possible workarounds.
