    Most of us know of the recent exploit posted to the MS forums and here's the first actual virus associated with it. And yes, you CAN get it just by viewing the .jpg (which right now isn't an actual image but still a .jpg in 8k of code).

    Hmm........that seems strange, I have never heard of that before. Hopefully they will find a way to combat it soon.
    The mind is like a parachute, it only works when it's open.

    JPEG is an image file... so, relatively speaking, if THIS was the jpg virus, you would get it just by viewing the picture:

    Yea... if they could use the knowledge on more important things, the country would probably be a different place...

    With the ability to hack, comes great responsibility. I think i can handle it. With knowledge of computers, comes the ability to do some crazy stuff
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Fantastic. Now my workload is likely going to skyrocket even more thanks to this great breakthrough in computer destruction.

    Its things like this that make tech support gurus want to hurl themselves over a nice, tall bridge.
    Some random words.
