Windows Metafile vulnerability

<![CDATA[Ooooh, I just read on Wikipedia about a vulnerability in how Windows reads WMF files. The reason why I find this so interesting is because apparently the vulnerability exists versions of Windows all the way back to 3.0!

Windows, Windows 3.0, Windows 3.1, viruses]]>
