The bug affects Windows XP and all versions of Windows released since, including the developer preview of Windows 8. It was privately reported by Luigi Auriemma, an Italian security researcher who frequently focuses on vulnerabilities in industrial control systems and SCADA, or supervisory control and data acquisition, systems used to control dams, gasoline refineries, and power plants. Microsoft said there's no indication the vulnerability is being used in the public to attack Windows users at the moment, but the company predicts that could change.Most users have automatic updating enabled and will not need to take any action because this security update will be downloaded and installed automatically. Users who have not enabled automatic updating need to check for updates and install this update manually.
