Reader Jack showed us notifications that the vulnerability for Microsoft Windows Help and Support Center is being exploited in the wild. More information for this vulnerability at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/advisory/2219475.mspx.

To fix this problem, please visit http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2219475 and look for the "Enable this fix" image. It will download a MSI that unregisters the HCP protocol as a workaround, because there is currently no patch available.
