VLC media player versions 0.8.6 to 0.8.6c suffer from a security vulnerability in the ActiveX plugin. More technical details are available in our advisory
An updated release of VLC is available which includes a few other fixes as well, notably better compatibility with MacOSX 10.5 Leopard. The full list of changes can be found here
We strongly recommend all users to update to this new version.
Note that early and broken Win32 binaries have been distributed by third party websites. Make sure to download from an official VideoLAN mirror to avoid disappointment.

gave you plenty of reps carpo, thanx for the info


I just used the native updater in the help pulldown of the program

it's a little cumbersome, hit check for updates, then in the pop up hit check for updates again (why twice I have no clue)

after the download you have to open an explorer window, go to program files, find vlc, open, find the new installer and go from there

kind of convoluted but it works fine
