Steve Gibson of Gibson Research has been examining the Windows WMF vulnerability, and has tentatively concluded that it is a backdoor deliberately inserted by someone at Microsoft. We won't know if it was a rogue programmer or an official action until we get a look at Microsoft's source code, and when that happens Satan will need a snowmobile. (Hat tip to Groklaw.) —brad
