Debunking JPEG FUD

Joe Wilcox has a good piece on Debunking JPEG FUD, showing how the recent news that there’s malicious JPEG’s out in the wild has been somewhat overplayed. In my own story for eWeek about it, I noted that if you’re using Norton Anti-Virus and keeping your definitions up to date, you have no need to worry about this one at all. However, make sure you keep an eye on this one: my colleague Larry Seltzer, in a follow up story, notes that Symantex has discovered another wild malicious JPEG out there.
