List Readers:

I've posted a new blog entry on SecuriTeam regarding the Internet
Explorer VML issue:

http://blogs.securiteam.com/index.php/archives/624

It details mitigation steps you can take to prevent or mitigate the
exploitation of this vulnerability, with particular relevance to the
in-the-wild exploits we've seen targeting this issue. The new
workarounds/mitigations include:

* Software-enforced DEP on Windows XP SP2
* Running with limited privilege
* Using Software Restriction Policies to achieve this on XP SP2.

Please direct any comments to me off-list or to the blog post.

Regards,
Matt Murphy
