Looks like a great idea for penetration testing though. I wonder how long it will take places to patch this...

So, what's the best way to keep informed on such topic? MSFT got a security notice mail-list, is there any other good one?

I read headlines on sites like arstechnica and haunt forums like here and spiceworks.
