Runaway String “Vacua”

A new paper by Intriligator and Seiberg points out that some recent string theory models of dynamical supersymmetry breaking do not actually break supersymmetry but have runaway “vacua”.  The vacua from flux compactifications and moduli stabilization that are under perturbative control all seem to break supersymmetry near the Planck scale, so it would be interesteing to know if there are any known string vacua that are rigorously stabilized and contain the MSSM with weak scale supersymmetry.
