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."

This is hardly over blown. I've had norton popup about 10times because websites and some web ads have this exploit in them.

I talked to Symantec tech support today. They are having problems with lots of false positive detections on this. it is possible that the files you are seeing detected are not actually malicious.
