why not use MIDI files ...theres always a patch for a flaw
Exploiting the flaw would entail the creation of a maliciously malformed MIDI file, which vulnerable Windows users would have to be tricked
into running, either through e-mail or a Web page

Sure there is always a patch but only so many holes can be filled in a O.S that is like Swiss cheese. It is a good thing that it was found and patched before a real problem came around and bit everyone in the A$$ Thanks for posting this
