New WMF Exploit Patch
I had hoped I wouldn’t have to write about the Zero-Day WMF Exploit again but I feel a responsibility to anyone who has followed my advice. I suspect most of my readers have already heard that a programmer named Ilfak Guilfanov beat me too it and and has created a patch for this problem. If not, you can learn more on Ilfak’s Blog where he includes a link to newest patch available.
I have verified this patch will work on a system that hasn’t already been effected. I can’t personally say for sure what the results will be on a system that has already been affected.
Downloading this patch is probably a good idea but only if you’ll remember to follow this story. When Microsoft does create an official patch you’ll need to follow Ilfak's instructions to Uninstall his software.
