It's the GDI+ JPEG prossessing exploit, working with a faulty older versions of the "gdiplus.dll" - and you're just a smidge late, lad <_<

Note it's a flaw with MS products like IE, Outlook & other image processing programs - and probably 3. party programs that use the same dll or a duplicate residing in another directory. Heck, even the 2 years old IE 5.2 on my Mac goes South when opening such an image - luckily a Win virus/worm/whatever isn't a threat to Mac OS X.:p
So get your Win OS security fix(es) today - and a copy of the "GDI+ Detection Tool" via http://support.microsoft.com/kb/873374/EN-US/ to check for non-MS programs still vulnerable.

Happy surfing

And switch your browser to Firefox, or some other well maintained browser. Dump Internet Explorer as soon as possbible. It's full of security holes.

I can't do adder than agree whit you "dDave".
The version 1.0 of Mozilla-Firefox has been release.
And whit all those add on tolls you can do everything that IE can and much much more.

Haw a nice day.
