Vista: Voice over Internet

    Someone George Wu found a fun hole in the freshly released Whist. As you know, the new OS from Microsoft supports voice control. If both a microphone and speakers are connected to the computer, it is possible to play sound so that the OS perceives it as a command given by the user. Web pages learned to play sound files about 10 years ago, so the rest is a matter of technology.

    Of course, algorithmic ways to filter such feedback exist, and anyone who has used voice communication through a computer with speakers knows that they work quite stably. However, in this particular case, these methods were apparently forgotten, since Microsoft confirmed this vulnerability .

    It is worth noting that voice control is OFF by default. But it does not require training.
