    Can't blame them for patching it so quickly.

    Quickly? IIRC, the exploit was known since June 18th (going by the post date of the sticky about it). I get that they're not checking this site (or similar hacking sites) on a daily basis, but 1,5 months isn't exactly lightning speed.

    We all know this would be patched sooner or later, and for what it's worth, I gotta say that this actually rather counts as "later". :unsure:
