Video Blogging Virus?

2006 will be the year of online video. Looks like some virus writers have noticed this.

More affordable broadband internet, easy to use digital video cameras, and video editing and mixing software are contributing to the growing interest in streaming video and video blogging. Viewers are curious about creative videos online, and others are planning to maliciously latch on to this popularity.

In Ryan Naraine's Beware of Strange iTunes/QuickTime Movies [link via GeekNewsCentral], you'll read security experts' warnings that "a heap overflow vulnerability in Apple Computer Inc.'s iTunes and QuickTime media players could put millions of PC and Mac users at risk of malicious hacker attacks."

Now I'm going to think twice before downloading and viewing MOV files. Will this deter others from viewing videos online? For those with new broadband connections, probably not.

So to video bloggers out there, vblog away!
