    Funny, but it isn't more than that in my opinion. I don't see why that would be a virus :).

    Getting back to what the subject-title implied (and why I read the topic) ...

    I'd heard years ago that one of the research labs had discovered it was theoretically possible to embed malware into JPG's, but they hadn't (yet) run into any actual instances of this having been done.

    Has this since been disproven, or is it still considered a theoretical risk, just waiting for someone to get it to work?

    Sorry about that Ron, I must have missed that post :oops:

    Also sorry about the title, I didn't mean it that way. The pics themselves are not malware but created from malware. Ron's link explains it better:

    I guess you can find art in anything, lol.
