Two new WMF bugs found

Strangely enough, these two flaws are not the ones I spoke of during Sunday's show. They are closely related, though. It turns out that the two I spoke of have been deprecated to the level of bugs and are not vulnerabilities.

Before you get too wound up over these, note that they are not rated as nearly as severe as last week's flaw. And as the article says; this is a consequence of the inherent complexity of image handling. While we as users tend to think of images as a simple display task, that is not true. There is a whole lot more to it and that complexity is the reason vulnerabilities are continually found.
