Ummm.. Is that a worm in your JPEG or are you just happy to see me?

It’s that time again, time to go to Microsoft’s update page and start updating everything you own from Microsoft. You heard me right everything, well just about everything. It seems that there is a flaw in the way Microsoft products display JPEGs which could allow someone to compromise your system. Yup, that’s right view a picture lose your system. Well the good news is that there is not even a proof of concept yet to exploit the hole. Doesn’t mean their not hard at work at it now since everyone knows it exists now. If your running Windows XP SP2 your not effected for your OS or Browser however your Office products still need to be updated. Follow the link below to view the Microsoft TechNet article.
