Default Microsoft warns of thumbnail hole in Windows

In a security advisory, Microsoft warns of a new, previously unknown security hole in Windows which can be exploited to inject and execute arbitrary code. Sample code that demonstrates how to go about an exploit is already in circulation.
According to Microsoft's security advisory, all versions of Windows except Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 are vulnerable. Microsoft say that they are currently not aware of any attacks which try to exploit the reported vulnerability. However, this could soon change, as a Metasploit module for creating suitable malicious files was released almost simultaneously with Microsoft's advisory.
