Possible questions for a siltent patchTuesday

Microsoft has announced 1 critical bulletin that can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS09-jan.mspx.

Does this mean we are safe?
Does this mean that MS is releasing patches silently without releasing it in detail to common public, for them to know about how things work ?

It makes sense in both cases, since not everyone would know every single thing they are vulnerable to, especially when they are concentrating on how to expand further by creating a new technology and a new OS when they do not even have time to fix the stuff that is vulnerable in their past OS and components.

Secondly, it is their product and hence they have license to update and fix their product without making a public disclosure of it.

Hence, it makes sense either way.
