Another flaw has been detected in GDI WMF drawing library, this could be exploited to execute arbitrary code.

Similar is nature to flaw detected with WMF drawing code http://secunia.com/advisories/17498/

This would be made public once M$ releases a patch.

Till then, block .wmf images in emails/web pages with your proxy server or any other way if you login with admin accounts on your PC.
 
It's always a common sense to switch of image display in your emails irrespective of which OS you run.
