    I believe that you are wrong. Can you show us any technical reports saying that it can be done?

    Try telling the microsoft programmers that.

    those are vulnerabilities to DoS attacks... not a virus passing to your computer... there is a huge difference

    Though i can't see the post, i still remember it. The man who post it said that a virus can't hide behind an image, the webpage isn't downloaded in you hard disk etc.

    First of all, i took images as an example. But to continue with it, the virus can be attached on it, and when you download the page, you download the picture and the virus. Then the virus won't ask anybody and will start to act automatically on your computer.

    About the place where you download the page, i still insist that it's your hard disk ( and not your RAM for example ). A folder is created in your hard disk and whenever you want, connected or not, you can find that folder and the components of the pages you visited.

    So, you can take viruses from a website.

    AProg: send me your IP address and I'll check to see if you have a virus in your monitor from a picture you viewed...

    From a pure webpage ? No way. You can be either misinformed, lazy or have buggy software that allows execution of arbitrary code on your system. You can configure your system in a way that is harmful. But catching a virus from a HTML page or by opening Java applets or flash with a notepad or simply saving it to disk is as likely as catching a cold when dead.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    vasanth - You said a little thinking gets you past level 11. Is everything you need contained in the code, or does it involve thinking of the "stupid" passwords that people use (like "admin")?
    Away.
