AMD forums laid low by Windows exploit

A discussion forum Web site for fans of Advanced Micro Devices' chips was closed Monday after the discovery there of an exploit for Microsoft's Windows Meta File flaw.

Mikko Hypponen, chief research officer at F-Secure, posted an item on the company's blog Monday outlining a WMF exploit on the home page for AMD-sponsored discussion forums. The exploit has since been removed, AMD said.
