  I have checked 3 XP Pro systems and 1 Vista Ultimate SP1 system and none
of them have been offered the Dec 2008 version of the Windows Malicious
Software Removal Tool, but have received other updates from yesterday's
releases.  KB894199 does not indicate that this update has been pulled, and
I have verified that V2.5 has not run yet by examining the
%SystemRoot%\Debug\mrt*.log files, they have not been updated since Nov
2008.  I have also manually run Windows Update on another XP SP2 system, and
it is not available via that channel either.
    Microsoft, what is the status of this update?
