MS10-081 SVG Issues! (YAY)

So back at the beginning of the year a new exploit appeared on exploit-db.com concerning SVG graphics. The whole issue had to do with a third party plugin dealing with yet another Adobe plug-in. This time it was Adobe SVG Viewer. (Last September it was flash and PDF exploits) Apparently the patch has already gone out and in fact, was the very thing that made finding the exploit possible. (You can read more about the beauty of this hack, here) Now, this hack only works for Windows XP SP3 (or so I am told) and has already been patch (So it looks like most are safe for now)
