Crash Windows XP with tiny C program

Oh joy of joys... Found this from a side note to a story over on The Inquirer. Lets hope Microsoft fix this one with their "critical updates" from WindowsUpdate! (This is in the public domain so please don't blame me for posting this.)

    I'm posting this article on behalf of my coworker.

    He found the bug which crash or reboot Windows 2000 and Windows XP.

    If the following code is excuted on Win2k or XP, Win2k or XP crashes or rebooted. On Windows 98, nothing happens.

      #include <stdio.h>

      int main( void )


      for( ;; ){

      printf( "hung upttbbbbbb" );


      return 0;
