New IM Worm Exploiting WMF Vulnerability
We have received information that a new IM Worm is hitting the Netherlands.  Apparently the worm is spreading with MSN and is spreading with a malformed WMF file called "xmas-2006 FUNNY.jpg".

Be very careful when opening the New Years Greetings that you receive folks.  We wouldn't want you to have to spend the rest of your holiday weekend rebuilding your computer.

Thanks to Juha-Matti for providing the information.
