Re: WMF Exploit

From my experience on XP/2003, IE will only render WMF files as images if 
the "placeable" header has been added before the WMF header. The addition 
of the "placeable" header prevents the SetAbortProc from being reached in 
the Escape() function, due to a check on the device context (credits to 
mr. anonymous for that gem, I spent an hour beating my head on it).

I will try to publish an "exploit faq" later tonight, seems to be way too 
much confusion about this flaw...

Remember, just because when you double-click on a WMF file
Windows Explorer doesn't know what to do with it does NOT mean
that when presented to IE in an <img> tag, it won't. Even trying
to open the file with IE doesn't mean anything. You need to
try it in a webpage.
