JPG pictures can be hazardous to your PC

Of course, it goes without saying that this is a Microsoft problem. I remember, once upon a time, we used to say "Well, you got to be careful about viruses and all, but pictures are okay. JPGs are okay".

Well, paint me yellow and call me a canary, because it seems now that they aren't. A vulnerability in Windows XP means that viewing a picture on the Internet now could result in an infected PC.

Strange but true, stupid but true.
