Windows 7: Emerging Win7 x64 BSOD Vulnerability

Emerging Win7 x64 BSOD Vulnerability

Apparently a simple piece of HTML code, executed in Safari, causes the Windows kernel to perform an instant BSOD (it only affects 64 bit builds).

A simple HTML tag will crash 64-bit Windows 7 ? The Register

It's presently unclear whether this could execute in other browsers, but since the code is all over Twitter and various forums you can bet your bottom dollar some websites will fall victim to hackers maliciously injecting the code before the vulnerability is patched.

The consensus of opinion is that it's not Apples fault, but Microsofts

ye since fanboys believe apple is perfect and its Microsoft's fault even though Microsoft didn't have anything to do with the coding since it was all coded by apple which would conclude that its apple's fault, i find it humorous anyways hopefully they fix that even though i dont use safari and use firefox

Hi there
So if I throw a Brick on to the windscreen of an approaching BMW and the windscreen smashes it's BMW's fault and not mine.!!!!


The Apple fanboys need to get real. -- Incidentally at least Windows ALLOWS Apple stuff to run on it which is far from the case the other way around.

OK there might be some error in W7's code -- but ANY 3rd party app can get this problem -- and it's up to the two parties to sort out whatever appears to be the problem.

Cheers
jimbo

(BTW Please don't throw a brick at my nice shiny new BMW to test the theory is it Your fault or BMW's !!!!!).

Happy new Year all
