Why would this be a new security problem ?
Looks to me like some people are just systematically planting a standard
hack package on systems with no or weak admin passwords. Nothing new there.

From the bulletin:

Attack Vectors
Analysis to date indicates that the attackers appear to have gained entry to
the systems by using weak or blank administrator passwords. Microsoft has no
evidence to suggest that any heretofore unknown security vulnerabilities
have been used in the attacks.
