Infocon Yellow

This afternoon SANS - Internet Storm Center changed their Infocon warning system from green to yellow.
The Infocon status is now yellow, due to the MSDDS.DLL exploit now available. We moved to Yellow as we feel widespread malicious use of this vulnerability is imminent, and the workarounds shown here provide sufficient countermeasures to be applied quickly. We expect to move back to green by the end of the day or early tomorrow.

This afternoon Microsoft released a security advisory regarding the MSDDS.DLL exploit.
