Microsoft WMF Patch Available

Microsoft has released the patch for the Zero-Day Exploit a little earlier than expected. While Microsoft first announced this patch would be ready on January 10th, they decided it was better to make it available immediately.

The patch is now available at
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS06-001.mspx

Find the section that says “Affected Software:” and click on “Download the update” following your operating system.

If you followed our previous advice to unregister shmgv.dll you’ll want to re-register this DLL.
Click on Start button, and select Run.
Type “regsvr32  shimgvw.dll”  and click OK

I had been wondering why I hadn't gotten any fixes through Windoze Critical Update for my Win98 SE, and now I know. Yes, a fix has been released, but the site you pointed me to says the problem isn't rated as Critical for Win 98 and ME, so no, they're not releasing a fix for these declining-suport OSes. (To be Critical, there'd have to be potential to launch a worm. Mere compromising of data is only rated as Important.)
