Windows The saga around the WMF flaw in Windows continues. "A cryptographically signed version of Microsoft's patch for the Windows Metafile vulnerability accidentally leaked onto the Internet late Tuesday, adding a new wrinkle to the company's round-the-clock efforts to stop the flow of malicious exploits. The MSRC (Microsoft Security Response Center) acknowledged that a slip-up caused 'a fast-track, pre-release version of the update' to be posted to a security community site and urged users to 'disregard' the premature update."

Wrong again dickwad.

In any case, because you'll be so blatently unaware, mind if send you a 1x1px WMF as an embedded image on a webpage you view, and f--k your computer right up the arse?

So much for no contact eh? This security hole could be a great tool to combat trolls such as yourself.

Yeah? And how exactly are you going to do that? Short of this and my own site, I don't read any other forums.

In any case, Opera on my Windows box is set up not to load any images anyway. Windows = gaming, encoding.
