    Microsoft has released an out-of-band security patch to address a spoofing vulnerability after a number of unauthorized digital certificates derived from a Microsoft CA were discovered in the recently discovered "Flame" malware.

    The patch can be downloaded from the Window Update site, or manually from: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2718704

    A simple install on a Windows 7, 64 bit os. No boot required, no issues identified.

    Yes, I installed it the same way, but on Win XP a restart was required.

    But apparently the "Flame" malware we've been hearing so much about just lately was signed with digital certificates issued by a Microsoft CA, hence all the fuss.

    More on the story here: Flame worm was signed by forged Microsoft certificate
