As mentioned yesterday, a public head of steam is building up around the very serious security vulnerability in Windows’ handling of WMF files. Microsoft attempted to relieve the pressure today with a press release that said hang on, the cavalry will be coming on this month’s regular Patch Tuesday (January 10). The relevant security bulletin was similarly updated. Unsurprisingly, they are not encouraging installation of the unofficial third party developed patch. I guess it’s going to be a race to see if any malefactors come up with an exploit that gets traction before the patch arrives.
