Vulnerability in Graphics Rendering Engine Could Allow Remote Code Execution (912919)

A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Graphics Rendering Engine because of the way that it handles Windows Metafile (WMF) images. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability by constructing a specially crafted WMF image that could potentially allow remote code execution if a user visited a malicious Web site or opened a specially crafted attachment in e-mail. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system.

Also on Windowsupdate, though my auto-update seems to be rather slow to pick anything up - I thought it was broken, until I did get one that way - maybe the scheduling is bad, so it misses the chance to be early.
