”The vulnerabilities relate to how the operating system renders the Windows Metafile (WMF) and Enhanced Metafile (EMF) image formats, Microsoft said Tuesday in its MS05-053 security bulletin. Two of them could allow a remote intruder to gain complete control over a Windows PC, Microsoft warned in the bulletin, the sole one in its monthly patch cycle.”
The exploit affects Windows 2000 and Windows XP SP1 among others, but a Service Pack 2 machine and a 2003 SP1 machine would be immune. Yet another reason to keep your machine updated and with the latest service pack.
