On September 12, 2006 a new security vulnerability was discovered in Internet Explorer that was confirmed by Microsoft Security Advisory (925568). This vulnerability has been used by websites to take control of a user’s computer. Microsoft has stated that they will not release a patch for the VML rendering security vulnerability until October 10, 2006. This security problem affects all Windows users from Windows 98 to Windows XP, even if you use a browser other than Internet Explorer.

The only way to protect your system at the present time is to completely disable VML rendering in your Internet Explorer browser.

We have created a small utility that easily turns your VML rendering on or off. If you use this utility to turn off VML rendering, the utility will automatically re-enable it on October 11, 2006 – the day after Microsoft’s expected patch release. This is accomplished by adding a start-up item that checks the current date each time your computer is booted. After October 11, 2006 the start-up item is automatically removed.
