Re: Driver for display goes to a infinite loop by viewing a html!

I am running Win2k with all of the latest patches, SP 4 and running
Mozilla 1.7.  While it did take a while to load and scrolling was
deathly slow.. It did not crash my system or Mozilla.    Since this is
my work machine, it's only a 733Mhz with an older video card.  I am
perplexed as to why a newer video card would crash Windows with a
fatal error.

Hello everybody,

Try scrolling the picture for few seconds...[ don't kill the process] I have tested it on several machines with intel 
vga. it reboots Winxp with a fetal error because The driver for the display device got stuck in an infinite loop.

ps: I've tested with firefox and IE browser... The exploit isn't triggered via a opera browser. There have been 
reports, Matrox G400 video card, driver (version on windows 2000 (sp4) also crashes.

The image itself is not big but the html resizing of it is big.
