Here’s a preliminary fix for the problem with LNK and PIF files (CVE-2010-2568).
I took the LinkIconShim from Libor Morkovsky and packaged it as an MSI for easier installation.
For now you will still have to choose the right MSI, though, depending on what your system is.
Here are the downloads (via SSL), sizes and hashes:
- 32bit systems: LinkIconShim32.msi (63 KiB),
- 64bit systems: LinkIconShim64.msi (111 KiB),
I’ve meanwhile created an even more convenient NSIS-based installer. The offered setup corresponds to rev 8 of the aforementioned project. It contains both the 32bit and the 64bit MSI files.
- lnkiconshim.exe (160 KiB),
