Dear Florian,

Exactly, the "attack" abuses the fact that windows has no authentication of the
window messages in the queue (in other words it doesn't know WHO send
the message, the APP or the USER in front of the PC). Not knowing who
send the message it happily executes it.

-> WindowsKEY + R
-> TYPE iexplore.exe
-> Press ENTER
-> Send Windowhide
Use your imagination from here on.
