Microsoft as expected has released one critical security update for its Exchange messaging server and two security updates for Windows, one of which was critical...

Amol Sarwate, the Vulnerability Research Lab manager for Qualys, said the vulnerability in Exchange was the most critical of the three. That flaw could allow a remote user to send e-mail with malicious content in it that would take control of Exchange or a user's computer. The flaw also could have been automated to create an e-mail worm, he said.

I knew about this - all because exchange decided to shut it self down once the updates has been put in.. no warning and 100 email users frozen with no exchange connection.

Wish I had a bit of warning ;)
