Neowin.net – Microsoft warns of critical unpatched Windows Shell vulnerabilityPosted: July 18, 2010
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 !
