Subject: no more public exploits

I agree, but the timing of the patch for an exploited vulnerability or a
non-exploited vulnerability can make a difference.  If there's an exploit
out in the wild for a vulnerability, you might want to drop everything and
patch everything you have.  But, if there isn't an exploit, you might be
able to get away with adding that patch to your weekly or whatever patching
schedule.

IMHO, no sysadmin taking his work seriously, will wait patching the systems
until an exploit is available throughout the internet.
