Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Microsoft Out-Of-Band Patch!

Microsoft does not issue out-of-band patches very often, so it's usually done for something important. Out-of-band refers to those security patches issued outside of the usual Update Tuesday schedule (the second Tuesday of each month). This patch affects all current versions of Windows - but for Windows XP users, tough toenails. Remember XP has no more official support anymore.
Microsoft has announced that they will be pushing an out-of-band security patch today. The patch, which affects nearly all of the company's major platforms, is rated 'critical' and it is recommended that you install the patch immediately. The patch is rated 'critical' because it allows for elevation of privileges and will require a restart.
