What are IT departments doing about GDI+ flaw?
Posted on 2004-10-06
The new GDI+ flaw and how to deal with it seems to be a huge task for IT departments. Specially for companies where applications are installed by end users when they need them. There are so many variations of software installed that no one seems to know all answers. For example if you have Office 97 with Outlook 2002 or 2003, what should be updated? Would Office updates automatically take care of these various sofware combinations? as an example the issue of mso.dll and vgx.dll
that GDI scan finds. How are they supposed to be dealt with?
I just can't imagine how this flaw can be dealt with in an orderly and sure way. Please correct me if I am wrong.
