Another zero day threat hits Windows

Sample code is circulating on the Internet for an attack using a flaw that Microsoft knows about, but has not yet fixed.

The flaw affects Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 and could be exploited via the Internet Explorer Web browser through a component called WebViewFolderIcon, the company said in an advisory.
