Microsoft plans to have a fix for the recently disclosed Windows Domain Name System service flaw available by its May 8 patch day at the latest.

"This is a developing situation and we are constantly evaluating the situation and the status of our development and testing of updates," Christopher Budd, a Microsoft Security Response Center staffer wrote on a corporate blog Tuesday.

Microsoft is working on 133 separate updates for the problem, Budd wrote.

"One in every language for every currently supported version of Windows servers," he wrote. "Each of these has to be tested to ensure they effectively protect against the vulnerability."
