Anybody read about this?

A guy wrote a PNG decoder, but he did it wrong and in doing so he discovered that Apple did it wrong as well.

The upshot is that a single PNG file can be made to show different information, depending on the platform!

Cool, but why do I feel like somehow, some way a hacker will use this to destroy us all?

This is kinda like those secret decoder rings we could get years ago to decode Anne's secret message! Only, we use Apple so we get to see it where the rest of the world doesn't!
