Hitokage an exploit using direct show could be rebuild for several other applications that rely on direct show.
As Apple's don't use DirectX (sadly otherwise the platform might be worth it) this exploit wont fly on Apple machines.
In other words this comes down to microsoft software being exploited not quicktime.

[citation][nom]computabug[/nom]Apple is trying to infect all Windows machines to make people switch to Macs lol[/citation]
Or Microsoft trying to infect XP users to make them upgrade to Vista/Win 7!

I agree, and all while putting the blame on Apple. What a brilliant scheme.

Haha, when Microsoft sucks, it's Microsoft. When Apple sucks, it's Microsoft. I see I see.

And when XP sucks... well... we just pretend XP doesn't suck.

Mac software on the PC has always been horible. There is about as much quality control in their PC software as there is in your toilet. A lot like Adobe now that I think about it...

Current investigations reveal that Windows 2000 Service Pack 4, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 are highly susceptible to an attack; Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 are not vulnerable.

Keep telling me how bad Vista is, and continue using XP. Everyone who has used a computer for 10 years or more, cannot deny that XP Sucked at launch. Hope they patch the exploit before any XP users get infected.
