Neowin.net – Microsoft warns of critical unpatched Windows Shell vulnerability

This is pretty serious , this vulnerability is caused due to an error in Windows Shell when parsing shortcuts (.lnk).

What this means is that you can get a virus in your computer even if you don’t open the shortcut files .

Hope Microsoft fixes this soon .

I hear the next patch Tuesday is scheduled for Aug 10th, so we are sitting ducks till then !
