I'm not sure if "overnight" is correct - since we released it around
4pm EST into our Partner's program. This is something different from
CANVAS Professional in that it's more a program for large penetration
testing companies, government agencies, and security providers. But
it's still funny that you can write an exploit faster than someone can
go through Microsoft Update....sometimes I don't know why people
bother patching at all.

"Overnight, popular hacker toolkits were updated with code that
allows researchers to check for the flaw and exploit it, said Neel
Mehta, a security expert at Internet Security Systems in Atlanta."

Did I completely miss exploit code being released in the wild for
that vulnerability?

TIA
