Well, since at least one known vendor (eEye) publicly said they reversed
engineered one of the patches in 1-hour after looking at the patch for
the first time, why believe otherwise? It's not impossible simply
because you can't do it.

Does anybody outside Microsoft's PR department *really* believe these
exploits are reverse-engineered from the patch?  I suspect we're going
to see a lot of PoC's coming in for a landing now that a patch is
available, reducing the 0-day's effectiveness...
