Created by a freelance programmer, the WMF Vulnerability HotFix is a security patch for a vulnerability found in Windows. The security flaw allowed remote code execution through the graphics rendering engine via image files. Microsoft announced the flaw in December 2005, and Ilfak Guilfanov released this dll as his own patch for the issue. This program is obsolete since Microsoft released a security patch soon after, which has been included in all subsequent versions of Microsoft Windows.
