Latest Windows Exploit Spreads, ZERT Issues Fix
Microsoft said it was pushing for a patch. "We are working overtime to help get all of you more secure," said Lennart Wistrand, a program manager at the company's Security Response Center (MSRC), in an entry written late Friday.

Although the Redmond, Wash. developer has not issued a fix -- it's shooting for Oct. 10 -- the independent Zeroday Emergency Response Team (ZERT) has produced an unsanctioned patch that should stymie attacks. ZERT, which first popped into the news Sept. 22 when it beat Microsoft to the VML fix punch by 4 days, has updated its ZProtector framework to account for the new vulnerability. The fix can be downloaded from here.
