MS06-022 - KB 918439
ART is an image file format (yep, image formats are still popular reasearch topics for hackers it seems). The format is used by AOL.
The impact of this is that users logged in with administrative rights can be exploited with remote code execution.
Microsoft rates this vulnerability as critical.
The patch removes support for ART image files from MSIE, as such they will not be rendered any longer.
It's interesting to note that the image library is an optional install on windows 2000.
