What classic MS, their newest critical alert dealing with the Gopher Root
Vulnerability discussed on Security Focus last week

Is there any validity to this- and, does their fix work?

Why would you phrase the question like this when you *are* PivX, know the 
vulnerability exists, and have your own fix for it?
I mean, asking "is there any validity to this" seems almost like you are 
trying to pretend to be an unattached 3rd party-- To me, anyway...

I would think it would be just fine to say "Hey, here is the problem, we 
have verified it, and we have a solution.... "

Of course, feel free to correct me if I am wrong...
