Attack Code Found For Recent Windows Bug 184

CWmike writes "Just a day after downplaying the vulnerability that caused it to issue an out-of-cycle patch last week, Microsoft warned customers late yesterday that exploit code had gone public and was being used in additional attacks. 'We've identified the public availability of exploit code that now shows code execution for the vulnerability addressed by MS08-067,' said Mike Reavey, operations manager of Microsoft's Security Response Center, in a post to the MSRC blog. 'This exploit code has been shown to result in remote code execution on Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and Windows 2000.'"

The issue I see is with immersion. Sure you can coat the MB but what about the USB, VGA, etc connectors? Can you guarantee water will not leak in. Water has a way of getting inside any way it possibly can. Coating may be beneficial when you do not intend to put in case. Maybe to protect the MB as a bench system.
