Hackers use porn to target the Microsoft JPEG hole? Or do they?

A new article claims that Hackers are really smarter then I gave them credit for. They are planting a virus in JPEGs, but only in pornographic ones, so far. Interesting. Could this be a smart Hacker, hitting us where some of use the Internet most? Or could this be the industries way to trying to scare us away from porn by making it ALL contain a virus? For most it would work to, many will stop trusting porn at together. It’s a great idea. http://www.nwfusion.com/news/2004/0928hackeusep.html?fsrc=rss-security
