Windows WMF Vulnerability is Patched, I Think
By now you’ve probably heard about the latest vulnerability that exploits Windows Meta Files (WMF). Despite the danger that the flaw presented, Microsoft announced it wouldn’t make a patch available until Tuesday, January 10.
Hurrumph. So until next Tuesday we were told not to visit any sites we don’t trust. Which of course goes for about 95% of my internet activity because that would include sites I’ve never visited before!
Then again, apparently Microsoft was listening to us after all and made their patch a little sooner than planned. I’ve watched soap operas with less fanfare.
Until the next crisis…
