WINE Still Vulnerable To Windows WMF Exploit

All applications launched inside Wine, Cedega, or Cross-Over Office are technically still exploitable. Wine runs on most x86 platforms, including Linux and the various BSDs.

Exploiting a Windows application running inside Wine depends on that application calling the vulnerable function with malicious data.
