    successful code execution is unlikely due to memory randomization. In most
    scenarios, it is much more likely that an attacker who successfully
    exploited this vulnerability could cause the affected system to stop
    responding and automatically restart.

    We are not aware of attacks that try to use the reported vulnerability or of
    customer impact at this time.

    Theirs More
    Microsoft Windows 7, when running on 64-bit platforms, allows local users
    to cause a denial of service (crash), as demonstrated using "Browse with
    Irfanview" and certain actions on a folder containing a large number of
    thumbnail images in "Resample" mode, possibly related to the ATI graphics
    driver, cdd.dll, or win32k.sys.

    Perhaps, but only the 64 bit build is subject to this vulnerability.

    But it is new and almost specific to Windows 7. And I'd rather read it ten

    And this isn't a forum - it's a newsgroup.

    True, and I reply with bottom posting except where the reply to the OP has
    been made with top posting. It makes little sense to respond to that reply
    with bottom posting, effectively splitting the message into a nonsense order
    where you want to keep all the message information.

    That's a good point, as the poster that did the top-post in
    the first place is most likely expecting that.

    I think the bigger issue was that MS Live Mail put the quoted
    text below the delimiter. As you can see, the OPs context is
    now lost because a compliant newsreader does not include the
    OPs sig & delimiter when you select 'Reply' or 'Followup', as
    I did here or Alias did before.

    Instead of splitting the message, it deletes the text of the
    original message. So if that was important info that may be of
    use in a later post in the same thread, you would need to go
    back and re-read messages to find the missing info.

    (This is just FYI. I don't care one way or the other. I'm not
    defending anyone, my 'panties arent in a bunch', or whatever
    other sayings some persons may use to personally attack me.)

    Indeed. If you top post, most likely that's your default, and you either
    want it that way, don't know the difference, or don't know/care about the
    convention.

    Still, at least WLM offers the option of top or bottom posting, whereas OE
    didn't, and Quotefix was required for automatic bottom-posting.

    Jeff,
    Haven't seen you post much so I assume you're new to the group. Don't let
    either of them get to you, they constantly try to disrupt the ng with rants
    about Unix and now it looks like they have nothing better to do than look
    for netiquette, when they don't know what it is to start with.
    HTH,

    You mean you haven't got a Troll Alarm icon in the Notification Area that
    flashes when one is detected? I thought everyone had one. ;-)))

    I've had Win7 only a few months, but have made a few posts. Had 3.1/NT4/XP
    for many years, so trolls are nothing new. I'm still undecided as to
    whether or not Bill Gates is a troll...
