Google Desktop and the latest Windows exploit

We got several questions on our note on Google Desktop yesterday. Bottom line is that if an image file with the exploit ends up to your hard drive, Google Desktop will try to index it and will execute the exploit in the process. There are several ways such a file could end up to the local drive. And this indexing-will-execute problem might happen with other desktop search engines too. F-Secure : News from the Lab
