WMF Exploit

Another quick observation, again, I apologize if this information has already been posted; I haven’t been able to read 
all the posts today. The thumbnail view in Windows Explorer will parse the graphics files in a folder, even if the file 
is never explicitly opened. This is enough to trigger the exploit. Even more frightening is that you don’t have to use 
the thumbnail view for a thumbnail to be generated. Under some circumstances, just single-clicking on the file will 
cause it to be parsed.
