[Dshield] WMF Ilfak Guilfanov workaround

It's a sad day when patches have to come from the community instead of
the vendor :)

I have setup some rules to block WMF extensions/streams from the
firewall and used REGSVR32 /U SHIMGVW.DLL to unregister the dll
(however, not really practical) 

I would have thought using patches like this is extremely dangerous from
a security standpoint.

I suppose this is one way Microsoft is copying open source :)
