Three of those have already been patched by Microsoft - the LNK vulnerability, the vulnerability located in the Print Spooler service, and a Windows XP local privilege escalation flaw - but the fourth one still remains unpatched.
That wouldn't be such a major problem, if it weren't for the fact that someone whose Internet handle is webDEViL hadn't released Proof-of-Concept exploit code for it.
