    Redefines the phrase Booby-Trap

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/3701640.stm


    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.

    Many thanks to egghead for the cool .sig
