Don't know the exact details but if you doubt that it's possible to download an infected image see just one of numerous exploits here:

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.
