Uppdatering om senaste Windows-hålet

Washington Post rapporterar mer om det senaste säkerhetshålet (jag skrev om det här). Hålet finns i alla versioner från Windows 98 och framåt, även de som har alla uppdateringar installerade.

What’s more, this vulnerability could be exploited by causing an infected image file to be displayed in any software that relies on the flawed Windows WMF rendering engine. Put simply, that means the exploit would work if an user merely viewed one of these images in the preview pane of an e-mail application like Microsoft Outlook, or even one cut-and-pasted into an attached Microsoft Word document.

Från en annan Washington Post-artikel:

Mike Reavey, operations manager for Microsoft’s Security Response Center, called the flaw ”a very serious issue.”
