    Technical Description:
    ----------------------
    * Color Management Module Vulnerability - CAN-2005-1219: A remote code
    execution vulnerability exists in the Microsoft Color Management Module
    because of the way that it handles ICC profile format tag validation. An
    attacker could exploit the vulnerability by constructing a malicious
    image file that could potentially allow remote code execution if a user
    visited a malicious Web site or viewed a malicious e-mail message. An
    attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take
    complete control of an affected system.

    NTBugtraq Editor's Note:
    Most viruses these days use spoofed email addresses. As such, using an Anti-Virus product which automatically notifies the perceived sender of a message it believes is infected may well cause more harm than good. Someone who did not actually send you a virus may receive the notification and scramble their support staff to find an infection which never existed in the first place. Suggest such notifications be disabled by whomever is responsible for your AV, or at least that the idea is considered.
