Surprise from Microsoft: Detailed patch advance info

When releasing information about the upcoming security patches of the next Tuesday Redmond guys informed about one Security Bulletin related especially to Microsoft XML Core Services. I.e. they are fixing Extremely Critical code execution vulnerability in XMLHTTP 4.0 ActiveX as a part of XML Core Services. Folks reading first time about this issue can check this MS URL: microsoft.com/technet/security/advisory/927892.mspx.

It was the first time today when they shared a more detailed information about the target of upcoming bulletins via Microsoft Security Bulletin Advance Notification program started exactly two years ago.

Hey boys and girls from One Microsoft Way, are you starting something totally new or is the  main reason the remarkable number of sites publishing the sploit code?
