Image Virus spreading through AOL chat

This didn't take long. Microsoft announced holes in it's applications that could be exploited with code implanted in JPEGs on September 14th. Patches were also made available. A week later code appeared on the internet that demonstrated how to exploit the holes in the applications. ZDNet reports today that just such a virus is spreading through AOL chats. It's a small infection thus far.
