Microsoft Security Bulletin MS06-001: Vulnerability in Graphics Rendering Engine Could Allow Remote

Yes, this is the release we’ve all been waiting for – Microsoft, under perhaps the most considerable public pressure in ages, has capitulated on the same day it released Windows Vista, the next release of its Windows operating system – to correct the now infamous WMF image explloit that could be used to plant any one of a number of viruses, trojans, etc. on a user’s system.  Get it – install it now – lest ye regret it!

UPDATE (6:56 PM EDT [GMT +5]):

Microsoft PressPass’s website offers more detail on why exactly this patch happened ahdead of schedule – debunking in advance the Slashdot-biased rumors & speculation that will doubtlessly follow. 😉
