Irrespective of the rest of what Roger says (which I agree with FTR), this bit
is simply wrong. Look at the PoC that has been made public:
It's not (just) about downloading malware gadgets. It's about exploiting
vulnerabilities *in* gadgets (the default gadgets in Vista, in the case of
the PoC). Essentially anywhere a gadget calls for example eval() on
untrusted data you *may* have a a problem.
