This is the reason why Alwil should update web page for such "boom" exploits and malwares... ::) C'mon guys, do something for yourself. Good marketing is half of entire project work. If you can't market your stuff good enough you won't do anything...
Do some publicity, write on webpage with big letters that your AV solution will protect users from this exploit, add WMF Exploit to latest threats etc. :-\

EDIT:
I see you finally added it, though doing it right away after releasing definitions would be even better...

Yeap, they released it! (although for not all operating systems - they don't consider it to be critical).
