    Hi. My Sygate Pro Firewall just gave me a warning pop up saying:
    [217] Microsoft Multiple Application/OS GDI+ JPEG Processing Buffer Overflow Vulnerability attempt detected (CAN-2004-0200)

    Does anyone know what this means? I am running XP home w/SP2. Thanks for any info.

    Hi chip718 I have moved your post from the TDS3 support forum to a more appropriate forum where it should receive better attention.

    Hi chip718

    Do you have any more particulars on the circumstances that generated this IDS alert? It refers to an older exploit (Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-028) and if you are current with your updates/patches should not be a concern. Also keep in mind IDS will generate the occassional false positive.

    Regards,
