According to Microsoft, the chances of someone actually taking over your system with this vulnerability are low. Microsoft suspects the system will lock up or become unresponsive prior to rebooting it's self should this vulnerability be attacked.
Any way you slice it, it's a stand up company that owns their mistakes.
