Ok, i have ready a bit about this over the last few days, but dident get a chance to post about it, but there is a new Windows vulnerability in the Windows Graphics Rendering Engine., which is bad, basically. Adi Oltean has a work around on how to fix the problem. Stay safe. For ease of use for users, here is a copy of the post:
As previously published *<a href=”http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/advisory/912840.mspx” target=_blank>here</a>, this is a quick-and-dirty method to get yourself in a safe position: *<blockquote dir=ltr>
*1) Click Start, click Run, type “regsvr32 -u %windir%\system32\shimgvw.dll” (without the quotation marks), and then click OK.
2) Restart the machine. *</blockquote>
*Impact of Workaround: The Windows Picture and Fax Viewer will no longer be started when users click on a link to an image type that is associated with the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. *
To undo this change, re-register Shimgvw.dll by following the above steps. Replace the text in Step 1 with “regsvr32 %windir%\system32\shimgvw.dll” (without the quotation marks).
MSRC is *<a href=”http://blogs.technet.com/msrc/archive/2005/12/30/416694.aspx” target=_blank>fully aware</a> about this situation and it is working on a patch to be released in the next days. In the meantime, make sure that your Windows OS is configured for receiving automated updates, and that you have an antivirus program installed. *
