I can't even BELIEVE this one. There is a critical security flaw in the Color Management module. Open MSPaint, and select custom colors. Now for some reason, a hacker can use that feature, to gain COMPLETE control over a Windows XP machine... :confused: :rolleyes: All you have to do, is visit a site that has taken advantage of the exploit. No need to accept anything, or intentionally download anything.

So what is the most absurd Microsoft Security flaw ever?

Personally, I don't think they'll ever top the all-users-as-susers flaw. But other than that... FFS, Bill.
