Jud writes "Microsoft's fix for the .ANI vulnerability was part of Patch Tuesday yesterday. However, all is not well with the update. Reportedly, installing the patch will break applications such as Realtek HD Audio Control Panel and CD-Tag, which mentions they are affected by the problem on their main page. A hotfix is currently available from Microsoft, however their current position is this is an isolated problem and the fix is not planned to be pushed out through Microsoft Update. "
