Yea;

That was/is my sentiment. Just another example of terrorism. Hopefully forums such as this and DPReview have good virus software filters that are updated so we can feel comfortable with our visits to the forums...

After looking at the included link, it appears that only windows meta file photos xxx.wmf are susceptible...

The WMF vulnerability uses images (WMF images) to execute arbitrary code. It will execute just by viewing the image. In most cases, you don't have click anything. Even images stored on your system may cause the exploit to be triggered if it is indexed by some indexing software. Viewing a directory in Explorer with 'Icon size' images will cause the exploit to be triggered as well. Microsoft announced that an official patch will not be available before January 10th 2006 (next regular update cycle).

For the most stuff around office/pics/audio/internet I turned to Linux, Kanotix that is.

So the message leaves me completely calm. :G
