A zero-day exploit affecting fully-patched Windows installations is afoot. Merely viewing a malicious WMF image on the PC will install various nasties to your PC.

Block image adverts in FF/Opera/IE NOW!!!!!!!!

That makes it scarier. Any virus writer can pay to get his/her image displayed in millions of PCs.

FF has a setting for "Load images from originating web sites only". Is it possible to do something similar in IE or Opera?

Update: beehappyy.biz is being implicated in the currently ongoing WMF 0-day exploit mania. And guess what beehappyy.biz resolves to ? 195.225.176.38 - Kiev, Ukraine. Null-Routing, anyone?
