Time to update your Windows again.

For users running Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, and XP (SP1, and SP2), please patch your system immediately. This vulnerability is a real nasty one. Windows 98, 98SE, and ME are not exposed.

Quote:
A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Graphics Rendering Engine because of the way that it handles Windows Metafile (WMF) images. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability by constructing a specially crafted WMF image that could potentially allow remote code execution if a user visited a malicious Web site or opened a specially crafted attachment in e-mail. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system.

I think mine updated automatically last night. I heard a bunch of noise when it restarted and when I got up, there was an update banner.
