Submission + - A simple HTML tag will crash 64-bit Windows 7 (theregister.co.uk)

Java Pimp writes: An unpatched critical flaw in 64-bit Windows 7 can lead to a 'blue screen of death' system crash. The flaw is triggered by viewing a malicious HTML page containing an IFRAME element with a sufficiently large height attribute while using the Safari web browser. The flaw seems to be exploitable only with Safari at the moment. However, such a flaw could lead to the ability to execute arbitrary code in the kernel.
