    A related article about this is at CNet News.com:

    Computer code posted Tuesday can crash vulnerable Windows machines by exploiting a "critical" Windows flaw disclosed by Microsoft in October.

    and another breaking exploit regarding Perl:

    http://news.com.com/Danger level rises for Perl app flaws/2100-1002_3-5975954.html?tag=cd.top

    A type of security flaw in Perl applications that experts thought could lead only to a denial-of-service attack is now believed to be much more serious.
