Carefully read the subtext in his note.  He would like an exploit if 
possible (or at least that's his claim) so that he can prove to someone 
else that yes, it DOES need to be patched, right now.  I.e. he's got a 
boss with pointy hair that isn't cooperating.

You don't have to believe his story.  Having dealt with many bosses (my 
own, or someone else's) exactly like that, I'm willing to entertain his 

Calling the admin who wants to apply the patch, but isn't allowed to 
without jumping through hoops, lazy or stupid doesn't help anyone.
