Poison porn pics show up online
The first images crafted to contain a malicious program that can take control of a PC have been found on the net.
Security experts have been expecting such images to turn up after Microsoft revealed a weakness in the way Windows handles the popular Jpeg format.
Soon after this discovery, a program started circulating online that was written to exploit this bug.
The poisoned images were posted to a porn newsgroup at the weekend and were found by Usenet provider Easynews.
