Windows Security Vulnerability in *.wmf Image FilesDecember 29th, 2005
There’s a new security vulnerability for Windows XP in the way it processes *.wmf image files. Your computer can be compromised merely by viewing the image on a web site or email. Currently there are no patches, and anti-virus utilities don’t detect it (yet). The exploit is “in the wild,” and hard to protect against—unless you use the workaround.
