WINE and WMF
Ironically enough, WINE is still vulnerable to the now patched WMF exploit. Talk about emulation!
Quote from H D Moore(WINE Founder) from ZDNet

All applications launched inside Wine, Cedega, or Cross-Over Office are technically still exploitable. Wine runs on most x86 platforms, including Linux and the various BSDs.
Apparently someone has already written a patch for WINE and submitted it to the development team.

OMG.... Exploits are crossing platforms as *nix tries to emulate the functionality of Windows...
Eeeek, The world is coming to an end....
What can I say.... It already feels like 2007 and it's only Jan 6th 2006.... I needed a quick "vent"... It will be the last one this year, I promise..... and if you trust me - more fool you...
Don\'t SYN us.... We\'ll SYN you.....

haha, too good to be true :P to emulate something so accuratly is quite amazing although it makes me think the code was blagged somehow
With all the subtlety of an artillery barrage / Follow blindly, for the true path is sketchy at best. .:Bring OS X to x86!

I really needed that little piece of humor... The thought of running ms updates on a linux box has never crossed my mind...Their releasing a patch for anything below 2000 , from what i understand so a lot of people are left to fend for them selfs... All praise your (insert your av of choice here) gods.

while technically still exploitable (an overflow i assume) the offsets would be soo different and vary so much between versions of wine and the *nix it's running on- i find it very unlikely you'd have to worry much about this from a security stand point (although not impossible)...
yeah, I\'m gonna need that by friday...
