There was a buffer overflow exploit in Windows (CAN-2004-0200, MS04-028)
patched long ago. Like you, I am unaware of any image exploit under Linux
and second the motion of mounting the drive, copy off the JPEGs, and reburn.
With modest precaution, you could even load the CD under Windows (just hold
down that shift key) and copy off the JPEGS.
I was looking the reported list and wonder how did some of these get on the
CD? The ones mentioned by db are mass-mailer vectored. Since they are not
copied automatically when a disk is created, could they have been copied
with the images?
