Future: Talking Ads Take Over Computers

Here's one very interesting glitch brought to you by the new Vista. "George Ou writes in his blog that he found a remote exploit for the new and shiny Vista Speech Control. Specifically, websites playing soundfiles can trigger arbitrary commands." In other words, you go to a website with your speakers and mic on, a banner literally tells your computer "Click here" and your computer does click there. Or maybe buys something for you. How cool is that? There's a discussion on Slashdot, if you are interested.
