  • Kaspersky says no idea why company targeted by US govt [iophk: "dared to show vista7 in an unfavorable light"]
  • Any website can crash your Windows 7 or 8 PC with these four characters

    Here's how the bug works. All a naughty website has to do is use the character string '$MFT' in the directory name where a website keeps its images. Windows expects to see the four characters $MFT only in a special metadate file on your PC. When it sees those characters as a directory name, however, it causes enough problems that an affected PC will begin to slow down and eventually hang. At that point your only recourse is to reboot the machine. In some cases, the problem may even trigger the dreaded blue screen of death (BSOD).
