    Yeah I heard about this the other day. People who are using dial up connections are being re-routed to some place overseas and being charged an ungodly amount of money per minute to connect. It is all going throught his active X exploit. This isn't good, but what do you expect from M$

    Oh man that's horrible. I just placed a credit card order of about 1,000+ dollars.

    That is interesting, I'd like to know how they do this after the connection is established. since the call has already been made and dialing is impossible while the connection is there.

    Ok I found this, but I saw this actually on thescreensavers or callforhelp, but I couldn't find an article about it.
    And this article is kind of vague, doesn't say exactly what happens, just gives an example. But it shows the point.

    Not sure if this is related - might be a seperate issue from what's being discussed here, but...
