GDI+ JPEG viruses now in the wild

This is what you've all been waiting for, folks. There is now a virus that spreads inside JPEG files targetted towards vulnerable Microsoft implementations. Yet another file format down the drain at email gateways across the world.

Everyone, please, go to Windows Update if you are using a Microsoft operating system, browser, or email software.

I'm really not looking forward to seeing this used in spam.

This virus was noticed on some newsgroup servers: SecurityFocus BUGTRAQ Mailing List: BugTraq
