Vulnerabilities exist in Internet Explorer, the most severe of these could allow an attacker to take complete control of an affected system.

VU#965206 - Microsoft Internet Explorer JPEG rendering library
vulnerable to buffer overflow

Microsoft Internet Explorer contains a flaw related to JPEG image
rendering that may allow an attacker to remotely execute arbitrary
code.

A remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code on the local machine leading to a denial-of-service condition or possibly complete control of the machine.

Do yourself a favor and update your computer.

You know my favorite is that M$ never details the exploit in the standard post...you always have to dig (and dig and dig) for it. And they've changed the way their update website was designed while I was away, so shit's not nearly so easy to find as it used to be.

Funny thing is.. I can't update my computer.

I ran MSUpdate last night, and it updated my updater. And then it gave me the screen "Checking for new updates for your computer, with the scrolling green bars". I left it alone for twenty minutes, and still not done checking. So I left it overnight, and it still wasn't done. Gimp! :thumbsdn:
