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."

How do I know if computer is infected?

Member since:

What are the symptoms of infections? If I click on a WMF file Windows Media Player starts, but then displays a message saying there was an error and I am given the option of sending an error report or not. How would I go about reinstalling WMP or finding out if other system files are damaged and need fixing?
