Microsoft Urges Users Not to Use Windows on the Internet

New Windows vunerability -- from MIDI files!!!

Microsoft Direct X Vunerability bulletin

"An attacker could seek to exploit this vulnerability by creating a specially crafted MIDI file designed to exploit this vulnerability and then host it on a Web site or on a network share, or send it by using an HTML-based e-mail.

A successful attack could also cause an attacker's code to run on the user's computer in the security context of the user. "

Oh dear - more whacked out "trustworthy" computing from Microsoft.
