Microsoft released a fix before its monthly patch releases due to the severity of the issue. Hackers can use the Windows Shell to distribute nasty code that exploits Windows desktop shortcuts. The biggest problem? One need not to click the shortcut for the malicious code to activate. With the seriousness of the flaw, it has been patched immediately.
