Looks like Windows has another big problem(it's like a virus

Here it says that security is breached easily, through the gdi32.dll file. Looks like you might want to get rid of it.

P.S. Why does everyone think Microsoft is so exceptionally bad? Practicly all other businesses are just as bad as them.

if you look at Apple they are following microsofts footsteps.

if you look at enron you feel like the world is worth crap

if you look at the body-shop you realise that morals are only worth it while you are a small company.

its like WTF.

AFAIK GDI32.dll is too important to get rid of, I wouldn’t suggest trying it. Probably worth applying the patch that has been written for windows, search around it should be easy to find.

Yeah, I’m not gonna download it. And I can’t download a Windows Update or else my sytem will crash.

Microsoft will be releasing an official patch on the 10th.

(Chuckle…) “GDI32?” I don’t think so…! :smiley:

Heh. Good luck running windows without it… I mean, good luck if your interested in actually seeing anything on your screen

I actually ment to say get rid of the problem. I know it’s a core item, as it says so in the wiki and Bulletdodga said, too.

Why worry Window users should be use to viruses by now.

Remember you keep the local PC repair man in a job.

The exploit has been used to attack online forums which allow embedding of image files via “<img>” tags, prompting some gaming forums to disable “<img>” tags. Any site accepting image media upload, such as avatars, will also be vulnerable if it the site accepts .wmf files, possibly masquerading as another media file format.

Hope that doesn’t affect Elysiun.

Removing gdi32.dll in windows is like removing xorg in Linux. . . .

Just windows doesn’t really have commandline to fall back on :wink:

jsyk, Microsoft has posted a fix here

Also read today that Linux is vulnerable to the wmf intrusion via WINE.
