Oh, god! That was so lame!

First of all, it isn't even an image, but a webpage with a .jpg extention.
I checked the HTML and there is just a internal frame that points directly to your C: drive. There is nothing about hacking there. Just a stupid trick.

Heh, it might get computer iliterate people. But somehow I don't think you're supposed to be able to scroll inside of a JPG file.

Doesn't exactly mean my comp's safe though....

To understand what Nate is saying, try this URL:
http://barstow.ra-systems.com/hacked
(note that there is no .jpg extension on the above URL)

Hey, it was supposed to be all in fun - don't take it so seriously, guys! I hadn't seen this before I saw this a week ago, and thought it was pretty cool.
