After a Google researcher published the vulnerability and its working code on June 10th, Microsoft has confirmed that Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 contain an unpatched bug that could be used to infect PCs by duping users into visiting rigged Web sites or opening attack e-mail.

The vulnerability lies in the HCP protocol used by the Help Center in Windows XP. Microsoft has not given a deadline to issue a patch. In the mean while, Microsoft has advised the Windows XP/2003 users to disable the HCP protocol.

How to disable the HCP protocol using the automated Fix It tool : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2219475
