You can right click on a jpg picture, like set as background, where is the securit risk there.

If your browser is IE, or any browser that utilizes Windows native GDI functions to render the JPG, and you didn't have the patched GDI, then you have already lost. The act of the browser attempting to render the JPG will trigger the exploit code.
