First Vista security bug!

It is 1st February, 1:30PM.

I am rolling on the floor laughing at this, but it is true.

A technique has been released to delete files from a Vista PC!!!!

Have you ever been to a website and unwanted music starts playing?

Are you aware that speech recognition is becoming more popular so you can talk to your PC instead of typing?

Can you guess where this is going?

Yep a website only needs an audio file dictating commands to the computer to delete files, then empty the trash bin and it will.

Until Microsoft cave in and remove all the content control that stops you playing your own videos you have paid for on your computer, and stop taking control of what you can do with YOUR OWN PC this is gonna get far worse.

Their T&Cs let them delete anything they want to from your PC. Dangerous when viruses find a way into this mechanism!

Keep XP and sit back and laugh!!


Update: Vista's integrated virus scanner is worst on the market.
