Quick security update tomorrow

Tomorrow (Thursday 11th for those of you reading this later), we have the Adelaide SQL UG meeting as usual. Nick Ward speaking on Service Broker - should be good. Good crowd coming too - about 40 people again (that reminds me, I need to look through the lists to see if it's the same 40 each time).

Here's the new thing though - just before Nick gets up to speak, we're going to have a quick update from Carl Jongsma, a local security expert. He has stuff to tell us about some recent patches. More here once I've heard what he has to say.
