is the 'perfect operating system'. Today we debut and regurgitate
new and not so new for fun as follows. A warm up for the New Year if

We inject scripting and an executable into the html file which is
designed to point back to the executable in the html file and execute
it. Provided the html file is an html file, Internet Explorer 5.5 and
6.0 will execute it.

scripting inside is then parsed and fired. That scripting is pointing
back to the same executable file and because it is a self-executing
html file, it executes !
Fully self-contained harmless *.exe:
CAUTION: back up notepad.exe before opening
What a POS !
