"Normally, one would be subject to attack by browsing a Web page that has the attack built into it, but with very old, unpatched e-mail clients, it is also possible to be compromised through HTML e-mail."
As mentioned above, XP SP2 systems and Windows Server 2003 are not affected by the bug. Patches are available for Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows NT 4.0, Windows ME and Windows 98.
