Get Your Patches While You Can (If You Really Want Them)

Microsoft is on to the blogger who's posting what he thinks will be fixes in the first Vista service pack.

Incidentally, there's a bit of talk that Microsoft's rushed (although not all that rushed) a patch for a flaw in its animated cursor (.ANI) files. The bug makes security features of Vista, which were much-touted by the company, look not so great after all. In any case, the patch, along with some others for various versions of Windows, is posted here.
