The JPG vulnerability Posted by Mikko @ 18:51 GMT

It's the second Tuesday of the month and Microsoft has issued the latest security patches.

The most important vulnerability this time is a JPEG buffer overrun found from IE, Outlook, Office and many other products. With this, an attacker could post a picture to a website or mail it to a user, and could get his code executed as soon as the page was viewed with IE or read with Outlook.

Patch now.
