Windows autoupdate ran overnight (European time), so if you have that connected it should have pushed the update to your system automatically by now.

Never had a problem with autoupdate myself, personally I'd rather get the fix for the security flaw ASAP...

Since there have been problems with some patches in the past, I prefer to let others "beta test" the patches for me, and see what possible problems may occur with them before I install them. I made an exception with this latest one though and installed it right away. My surfing and downloading habits make an immediate install of most patches unnecessary.
