An elevation-of-privilege flaw exists, and Microsoft is keeping the info close to its vest. Apparently the flaw is a true flaw in that a proof-of-concept exercise exploited the hole.
I'm all for transparency but not a big fan of detailing a hole to hackers before it's plugged.
In another cool move, the code that attacks the hole has been removed from the Web. Classy move.
