First WMF worm found Posted by Mikko @ 18:46 GMT

xmasfunnyFirst worm using the new WMF vulnerability has been found. This is what we were afraid of. Thankfully it doesn't seem to be too bad.

We only have second hand reports of this case so far. It' a MSN Messenger worm sending links to an image file (link ending with "xmas-2006 FUNNY.jpg"). The link actually contains a web page with a malicious WMF file. F-Secure Anti-Virus does detect´┐Ż the WMF file in question with our generic detection.
