Warning, New virus VERY BAD

Microsoft Corp. has issued a security advisory for what Secunia is deeming an "extremely critical flaw" in Windows Metafile Format (.wmf) that is now being exploited on fully patched systems by malicious attackers.

The attack works by tricking users into opening malicious ".wmf" files in "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer" or by previewing such a file by selecting it in Windows Explorer. The attack can also be triggered automatically when visiting malicious Web sites via Internet Explorer.

Think twice before clicking onto any link!!!

Go to microsoft official site to read more.
