It appears that Symantec has raised the Threatcon to Level 2 this afternoon.
It seems that their honeypots have sniffed out "In-the-Wild Exploit attempts" targeting the vulnerability identified in MS08-021 which allows remote code execution in GDI if a user opens a specially crafted EMF or WMF image file. Microsoft announced this in their latest super Tuesday release.
If you haven't already patched do so now and don't forget to remind your users not to open image files.
