Microsoft announced that it would release a security update to help protect customers from exploitations of a vulnerability in the Windows Meta File (WMF) area of code in the Windows operating system on Tuesday, January 2, 2006, in response to malicious and criminal attacks on computer users that were discovered last week.

Microsoft will release the update today on Thursday, January 5, 2006, earlier than planned.

The security update will be available at 2:00 pm PT as MS06-001 (y)

Just run a scan at the Windows Update site and the KB912919 update should be listed in the critical updates section.

Personally, I'm going to wait until next Tuesday or Wednesday to install it, just in case Microsoft has the pre-released version listed in the Windows Updates site. I'm not in any hurry to install it anyway.
