    You may have heard about the recently discovered Windows security vulnerability,
    involving WMF type graphics files. If not you can read about it at the URL
    Fortunately, there is now an unofficial patch for Windows 2000, XP, 64-bit XP
    and 2003 server that is being endorsed by respected security experts, which you
    can download via the "Download Ilfak's Temporary WMF Patch" URL on the following
    I installed the patch 24 hours ago, and have not experienced any problems with
    it. Of course, there is no guarantee that the patch is safe, so installation is
    at your own risk.
    Please send any responses to this post, to me, off-list.
