Microsoft acted very quickly to release a patch for the serious zero day vulnerability that was recently discovered. I discussed the vulnerability here. More information on the security bulletin can be found here. In a surprise release, Microsoft did issue a patch for Windows XP for the CVE 2014-1776 vulnerability. If you are still running Windows XP this "update" is ONLY for this vulnerability. If you have automatic Windows updates configured on your computer this critical and priority patch is available. All users are encouraged to update immediately..
