The following article was posted to the website.  I thought you 
might be interested (see for the whole thing).

Here is how it starts:

"Thank you Microsoft for blessing us with a patch to fix the products 
you currently sell. The products that compete with Linux and Macintosh. 
Excellent job at diverting the our attention away from the fact that 
Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows Millennium Edition, and 
Windows NT4 remain vulnerable. Neat trick convincing people that "the 
vulnerability is not critical because an exploitable attack vector has 
not been identified that would yield a Critical severity rating for 
these versions."
