    Thanks, good thing i don't use BMP's very often.

    I've just checked the source, and the Secunia warning links to this.

    Provided and/or discovered by: Ivan Fratric

    Original Advisory: http://ifsec.blogspot.com/2007/04/several-windows-image-viewers.html


    He tested two other image viewers as well which also had vulnerabilities.

    ACDSee 9.0 Photo Manager
    IrfranView 3.99

    There could be others also that might be vulnerable, and as he only tested those three with BMP's, different formats could be suspect too ?
