Microsoft published a security bulletin affecting the MSN Messenger 6.2 and 7.0 beta. According to security firm Secunia, the vulnerability is caused due to an error within the processing of GIF images and can be exploited by sending a specially crafted emoticon or display picture to a user.
A successful exploit enables an attacker "to take complete control of an affected system," Microsoft acknowledged in its security bulletin MS05-022. This includes the installation of software; viewing, changing or deleting data as well as the creation of accounts with full user rights.

Languages and learning stuff and making stuff follow the same kinda pattern. They start off as something of a hack but it's ok because you don't need that much complexity. Things persist and are refined while accumulating complexity until you have something that is recognizable as resulting from what you started with but with a mature beauty and radiance.
It's like watching people grow really.
Just remember that you need more jelly for higher layers to get the layers to appear the same thickness. The fruit also contains water so you don't need as much in the jelly. Lastly, the only good way of melting the jelly is using a microwave.
Go do it!
