Anyone have Janet Jackson on their empeg?

"A certain 5400 RPM OEM hard drive, as shipped with laptop PCs in approximately 2005, allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (device malfunction and system crash) via a resonant-frequency attack with the audio signal from the Rhythm Nation music video."

That's a novel bug!

I've got that whole album, and the empeg has survived so far smile

This is definitely a beautiful attack. I'm sure if you wanted to do a bunch of legwork, you could find suitable frequencies to crash other hard drives.
