    From what I understand only Enterprises are vulnerable provided the firewall rules are relaxed. Meh.

    How about Pro with UAC, software and hardware firewall, and Secondary Logon Service disabled :)

    What pisses me off is that multi-billion $ company does not have a single person dedicated for informing the public in a fast and accurate manner.
    But if I was guessing, I'd say that NVIDIA is publicly ignoring this due to a manner that the exploit has been disclosed.

    Winter-Smith said he wanted to share the exploit in a timely fashion, rather than report it.

    “I am definitely not averse to responsible disclosure and typically do follow a responsible disclosure process, however the risk from this particular flaw being exploited was (is) sufficiently low that I didn't think it would warrant the wait,” he said.
