    Wow, a simple big jpeg completely crashes (and reboots) XP when viewed in IE6.

    -> DON'T GO with Internet Explorer if you don't want to crash...(no problems whatsoever in Firefox or Opera).



    edited direct link OUT. Yes, it DID crash my system entirely in IE...... so I've removed the direct link. ;) ~ TAS

    "Fix Tag Sizes [Kye-U]" in my Proxomitron Security Pack fixes this ;)

    How can I contact Microsoft about this DOS and where? This is definitely not as bad as the wmf exploit, but it's still a completely unacceptable behavior from their software.
