=======================================================================1) Word From Secunia:

The Secunia staff is spending hours every day to assure you the best
and most reliable source for vulnerability information. Every single 
vulnerability report is being validated and verified before a Secunia
advisory is written.

Secunia validates and verifies vulnerability reports in many different
ways e.g. by downloading the software and performing comprehensive
tests, by reviewing source code, or by validating the credibility of
the source from which the vulnerability report was issued.

As a result, Secunia's database is the most correct and complete source
for recent vulnerability information available on the Internet.

Secunia Online Vulnerability Database:
http://secunia.com/ 

=======================================================================2) This Week in Brief:

A vulnerability has been discovered in Microsoft Windows, which can be
exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

NOTE: This vulnerability can be exploited automatically when a user
visits a malicious web site using Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Additionally, exploit code is publicly available. This is being
exploited in the wild. The vulnerability can also be triggered from
explorer if the malicious file has been saved to a folder and renamed
to other image file extensions like ".jpg", ".gif", ".tif", and
".png" etc.

Please refer to the referenced Secunia advisory for additional
details and information about a temporary workaround.
