Windows XP infected by the infamous wmf virus in VMWare

The WMF exploit was a hole in the Microsoft Windows system file gdi32.dll, which was used to install rogue security software.

This exploit had appeared in Windows 3.0 to Server 2003 R2, and this hole has ever since been patched in Windows Vista and up. A Windows Update also fixes this hole.

This issue is not present in Windows 9x (95, 98, and ME).
