  • Windows WMF Exploit

    Good morning folks and Happy New Year 2006,

    Last week I read some articles on the new zero day exploit for Windows Metafile images and its variants. According to a trusted security firm, Secunia.com, they rate it as "extremely critical". There's no fix from Microsoft or Symantec yet, but a temporarily work-around has been developed. Please visit updatexp.com and Betanews.com

    A log on script would help unregister shimgvw.dll. with /u /s parameter

    I personally watched a movie clip from a security firm that showed how the exploit took over their virtual computer and network. The site is down right now due to excessive demands on bandwidth.

    If you are in corporate environment, and need to push out the temp fix via GPO, please visit SANS for an MSI installer.

    Secunia also posted an exploit for Symantec Antivirus as well.

    Regards,
    Teamwork
