Another flaw in Windows graphics engine

A flaw with the graphics driver in Windows 7 could compromise the stability and security of PCs, Microsoft has warned.

The vulnerability lies in the Windows Canonical Display Driver (cdd.dll) for the 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

This certainly sounds like a bit of history repeating.  And, they seem to be downplaying this (once again).

Hmm so Microsoft says the chances of this being exploited are very low. Would be cool if someone writes a working exploit for this :P
