The QuickTime/Java vulnerability that earned Dino Dai Zovi a $10,000 prize in a Mac hacking contest at the CanSecWest security conference also affects Windows, Tipping Point officials have confirmed.

"We have now verified that this issue affects both Windows and Mac operating systems, including Windows Vista through Internet Explorer," said Terri Forslof, manager of security response at TippingPoint.
