DoS Exploit for MS05-053 released
Today we received some alerts about exploits for MS05-053 that have been released and can be found on specialized websites.
This exploit claims to cause a DoS condition when viewing a special file on IE.

from the code:
"The crafted metafile from this code when viewed in internet explorer raises the CPU utilization to 100%. The code was tested on Windows 2000 server SP4. The issue does not occur with the hotfix for GDI (MS05-053) installed"

Did I say PATCH yet?
Go on...
