  1. The flaw which affects a long list of Windows applications, including Internet Explorer 6 SP1, can allow an attacker to compromise any computer running Windows when the user simply looks at a page with a malicious jpeg image. This page at Microsoft shows the complete list of affected applications. The Internet Storm Center is monitoring the situation, they also have a scanner that will scan your systems for vulnerable versions of the GDI libraries.
