Hi guys, several ISP's are experiencing a flood of calls from customers
who get failed installations of the recent IE 0day - VML - (vgx.dll).

If you are getting such floods too, this is why.

This is currently discussed on the botnets@ list, as raised by Cox, and I

No patch is currently available from Microsoft, workaround are available.

Gadi.

And this has to do with Network Operations in what way?
