Microsoft New Downloads: Un-patched

I was researching on some Microsoft stuff & patches and downloaded Media Encoder software. I was worried about the fact that it will be "patched" and I will have to look for a "un-patched" version to get my hands on the vulnerable wmex.dll (

After installing it, I was surprised to see it having a *.2980 version instead of a patched one! Then I downloaded the patch, extracted the files and got the newer *.3359 version. I don't know much about the corporate policies, but I feel, any software by Microsoft should be a "newer" version, specially after the patch tuesday vulnerability exposure!

To me it surely came as a shock in a "goodish" way ;)
