This is weird. MacBytes are now posting security threats? Wow...

And I'm not sure he's actually tried this on the x86 version. Until I see bug reports, it's a Mac only thing so far

This is a pretty damn old security vulnerability, albeit an unpatched one.

I suspect there's more than one way to cause a heap overflow in a program. Kind of like all those buffer overflow problems a program can have.
