From what I've heard, it's a Universal Plug-n-pray bug that seriously compromises the system. As it stands now, the number of XP copies sold == 7 million or so. The number patched is so much lower, I'd say it's close to 1%. Check out www.grc.com for more information on this.
We the willing, led by the unknowing, have been doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much with so little for so long that we are now qualified to do just about anything with almost nothing.

Just to prove a point:
News about the UPnP hole in XP might be hot stuff around the techno-circles, but for the common people.. hell 70% don't know what a goddamn PATCH is, never mind a bug. heh heh. Its would be interesting to see what we can come up with regarding this bug. I mean, what exploits can be used here. Any suggestions, Vorlin? Oh and another question. Won't simply running a firewall, and adding port 5000 ( the listening port ) to its range of protected ports somewhat solve the problem?
I blame you cos my mind is not my own, so don't blame me if I trespass in your zone!
