Anyone worried by this? After my experience reverse engineering and repairing a machine with really bad spyware caused by WMF (story on my blog soon: mhernandez.blogspot.com) I am really worried.

We had hoped the chapter on WMF exploits had finally been closed, pending the patching of countless millions of vulnerable workstations of course.  However, today we were forwarded a Bugtraq disclosure of two additional functions vulnerable to memory corruption attack within the Microsoft graphics rendering engine.  The flaw reportedly affects the 'ExtCreateRegion' and 'ExtEscape' functions and while there has been no current proof of concept exploit/DoS code publicly released we will be watching this issue closely.
