    Not news worthy? I submitted this as news 2 minutes after I received the alert in my email lastnight.

    I regularly post these notifications in the security forum as soon as Jerry Byrant from MS makes the information available this is often before the notification service sends out mailshots. I can't predict that someone may submit it to news at a later time.

    The news team will get to your submission and post it, this does not happen instantly. I am not a member of the news team so cant post it on the frontpage.
