Major threat to Windows PCs

Most of you will have heard of this already, just in case you haven't Please check it out.

CNN Report on Microsoft Vulnerability

and until Microsoft gets a patch out (RSN, really) you can find a fix here:

http://www.grc.com/sn/notes-020.htm

If you're interested in a detailed explanation of why this needs to be patched now, instead of waiting for the official patch, please check out:

SANS Internet Storm Center - Cooperative Cyber Threat Monitor and Alert system: WMF: Patches and workarounds explained

I should probably put a disclaimer in here about how applying any patch to you system is changing it and change can be bad on un-backed up systems, do this at your own risk,

But guys, read the articles, you'll get as scared as I am and apply the patches.

Be safe!
