Default MS says Critical MP vulnerability "Not security risk"

http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=13813

It's not a security risk, even though Mr. Gaffi had proof of concept of how it works.

Quote:
Mr. Gaffi included code for a proof-of-concept attack, which would execute code remotely on the victim's PC.

The claims evoked a quick and emphatic response from Microsoft. Microsoft claims that there is no "critical vulnerability" at all, and that the bug the research found could not be exploited. Microsoft stated that the problem is a "reliability issue with no security risk to customers."
