All software has flaws/bugs in it, just very few fall under the umbrella of "security risk". Better that Microsoft acknowledge the issue and have people update their software and take precautions to protect themselves.

And a flaw of this nature is only exploited when someone tries to do something illegal by hacking into a company's server. If someone leaves their car door unlocked, it does not give you the right to steal it...
