[Reader-comment]-Does vista really has a flaw....

well am posting this entry because of a comment by some anonymous reader on a previous post titled "Vista Speech Recognition has Flaw"... acc. to that its not basically a flaw so here am posting something from the source he gave me.... now its upto u whether u take it as a flaw or not!!! n mr. /ms. anonymous who ever u are thanks for ur valuable comment....

"The recently launched Vista is said to have a flaw that could allow remote attackers to take advantage of the operating system's speech recognition feature."

Now if you were an idiot and left your speakers turned on, and left your microphone pointing at your speakers, and happened to visit a malicious website, which started playing a recording of someone saying a command after you turned on speech recognition, and it happened to be interpreted by the windows speech recognizer to delete a file, then i guess you might have a problem.
