Latest Intel Pro/10* ethernet adaptor drivers contain vulnerable MSVC runtime!
Intel just released updated drivers for their ethernet network adaptors,
see
<http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=17906&ProdId=3025&lang=eng>
and
<http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18518&ProdId=3025&lang=eng>
for example.

Unfortunately ALL these driver packages but contain an outdated and
unsupported "Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Runtime", repackaged as
VC90_CRT_{x86,ia64,x64}.msi and violating Microsofts redistribution
rules, which installs VULNERABLE runtime DLLs.

See <http://support.microsoft.com/kb/973551>,
<http://support.microsoft.com/kb/973552> and
