This small html file will most likely drive your Windows into a blue screen:
<IMG SRC="image.jpg" width="9999999" height="9999999">

Nope, Win2k+Firefox not affected - funny behaviour, however: systems hangs for a few seconds, is alive again, hangs again....
SUSE 9.3 with kernel 22.214.171.124-20a-default, Firefox 1.0.1 not affected.
mac OS X 10.3 - Firefox:
winxpsp2+ff not affected *puh*
ähm: winxpsp2+ie6 not affected. wo ist der gag? *schonfeuchtehändehab*
WinXP, Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox (all newest versions) - no one crashes here. Loads in less than 1 second.
Probably a problem of you graphic driver?
Try again. I have replaced the PNG with a JPEG.
XP SP1 mit Firefox 1.0.3 kachelt ab. Danke für die Kaffeepause.
Yep that did it ;-)
nothing happens with jpeg on xpsp2 neither with ff 1.04 nor IE 6 ;-(
Yep. Kills XP (no SP2) running with Firefox and IE. Upon re-start XP told me:
“The driver for the display device was unable to complete a drawing operation... The display driver for ATI MOBILITY RADEON seems to be responsible for the system instability.”
In Firefox you can use a Greasemonkey Script to prevent the crash:
The above Script limits th Maximum Image Sizes to 5000px X 5000px.
Win2K + IE6.0 is "NOT" affected. But my XP is restarting (without BlueScreen). Nice code.
WinXPSP2: FF - No crash
IE - Just like Roland, Windows just shuts down without a blue screen. Gotta love it!
still not affected using SUSE 9.3 with kernel 126.96.36.199-20a-default, Firefox 1.0.1 ;-)
will check later on other systems ...
Yes, my PC with Windows XP SP2 and Firefox 1.0.4. gets killed. Any explanations why this happens?
WTF. XPSP2 + Firefox : computer freezes.
seems to try to reserve more memory than available :-)
(btw. - XP SP2, Opera8 (IE-Faking): stable)
You'd better try again...
Windows XP with SP2 and Firefox 1.0.4: Nothing happend (except displaying a really large image)
Damn, I'd tried again and saw my first XP bluescreen... (sexy, btw)
hat jemand schon mal versucht, das in eine HTML Mail einzufügen ?? Ich hab das gestern mal getan, allerdings gabs keine Abstürze obwohl ja z.B. Outlook zum rendern IE benutzt. Auch interessant wäre z.B. solch ein Codefragment in einer Ebay Auktion. Ich will hier nichts illegales betreiben, aber die Vorstellung daß ein HTML Mail Rechner zum Absturz bringen kann fände ich dann doch beunruhigend.
Linux FC3 with FF/Mozilla unaffected, doesn't even slow down the system, XPSP2 + Mozilla freeze's PC, was curious as to whether it'd recover, it's been frozen for 20 minutes so far with occasional screen refreshes.
Win2k SP4, FF 1.0.4 or IE 6 - stable.
