    Another flaw in Microsoft software has surfaced,
    with a graphics file now able to crash security of
    Windows.
    The flaw, in JPEG imaging technology is so broad
    that using Internet Explorer to view web pages
    could be risky.
    It affected computers with Wndows XP, Windows
    Server 2003,earlier versions of Office, and some
    third party applications.
    Another security patch has been issued by
    Microsoft.
    Anyone who dowloaded Service Pack 2 is
    encouraged to download the new security patch.

    Here is the Secunia Advisory

    http://secunia.com/advisories/12528/

    "NOTE: Office 2003 Service Pack 1, Visio 2003 Service Pack 1, and Project 2003 Service Pack 1 are NOT affected. Also note that Windows XP Service Pack 2 is NOT vulnerable, but systems running this version may still be affected if a vulnerable Office, Visio, or Project application is installed.

    NOTE: Systems may also still be vulnerable if an installed third party application has installed the vulnerable component and uses it for JPEG image processing."
