    Exclamation Browser exploit, hot off the press...

    Hi there,

    I would like to warn you folks of a new vulnerabilty in browsers.

    http://www.netzwelt.de/news/71506-wi...nf-zeilen.html

    The following html code can crash your machine, so watch out where you surf:

    <HTML>
    <BODY>
    <IMG SRC="./_owl-eyes.jpg" width="9999999" height="9999999">
    </BODY>
    </HTML>

    I've created an .html file and tested it on my box and it freezes. Repeatedly clicking to close the window did work after some time, but you could loose data, depending on your setup.
    Some folks might have to restart their boxes.

    Ain't life great....

    Here's an english description of this "vulnerability". Doesn't seem to be a browser issue as much as a video driver issue (redraw).
