New Security Threat Announced by M$

I just read about a new security threat that can be caused by downloading an infected TIFF file or opening a web page containing an infected TIFF. It's believed that M$ will offer a patch Tuesday next week but, for now, has offered a FIX-IT here.

It doesn't appear to relate to Windows 7 though:

Yes it does, if one of the affected Office products is run on Windows 7.
