RE: WMF and IPS products?

Hi Sam,

I am not sure what you are referring to with "protecting from
downloading malicious WMF content". The most proper way to do it would
be through signature based systems and it is known fact that all the
signature based systems were bypassed during this and other similar

You will see that Determina VPS Memory Firewall technology provides
zero-day protection for this vulnerability, preventing the end systems
from running any single instruction of the malicious code on the
affected system.

info and product details

Subject: WMF and IPS products?

I am curious if any of the major IPS vendors are able to successfully
protect workstations from downloading malicious WMF content?
