View Web Site, Get Virus

Found this article via Google news, about a recently discovered IE exploit in a JPEG file. If IE processes a modified JPEG file, it could allow execution of arbitrary code.

In layman's terms, if you view a web site with an affected JPEG, you get a virus.

I could go on a rant here, but why bother? Microsoft gives better reasons for not using Microsoft than I could ever come up with.
