SNMPv3 and XML-DSIG both fell to this, catastrophically.

I thought Georgi asked for the newest class of elite vulns?

Does (at least) ten years old count as new?


And against Win9x count as elite?   8-)

FWIW, MS00-072 was fairly widely exploited in the wild by at least the 
Opaserv (aka Opasoft) family of worms, though not until a couple (?) of 
years after the bulletin's release.
