Public release of exploits against the windows help system
We've received reports of a public release of exploits against the windows help system.

The exploits use *.hlp files. The best advise at this point it to block those at perimeters and to never trust them otherwise.

Please note that a few days ago Microsoft released patches for the HTML help system: MS06-046. But they don't seem to have anything to do with this.
