    It sounds pretty unbelievable to me. To make good on some of the claims made in the article they'd have to bypass not only Vista's security, but also the virtual memory system of the CPU. Unless their exploit can load code into the kernel that seems unlikely.

    Whatever the case, I'll be interested to see what they've come up with. But until I've seen them in action I have my reservations about things being as bad as the article claims.

    I don't know...it seems like yet another exploit in which the user would have to go through a number of precise steps before the darn exploit can work. And the bit about MS not being able to do anything...I'm pretty sure a patch or a few patches would fix this.


    Also, what's Corona doing on neowin?
