The bad news is -- this time you don't even have to read the email; in fact, the exploit can take place before Outlook even places the email in your Inbox. Looks to involve overloading the message's Date header field. MS says they're going to release a security patch on July 19 to fix this hole." The irony is of course that we're so jaded by all these sad macro viruses that when something this serious hits, we shrug it off as 'Just another security hole,' but this one is massive.
