That link above is safe. Click the "XP" and then down you go.

This URL directly is what seems to cause the crash, but farther than that, it's in your hands:
http://www.computerterrorism.com/research/ie/fillmem.htm

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. http://www.computerterrorism.com/research/ie/fillmem.htm
2. Crash

Actual Results:  
Crash

Expected Results:  
Not crashing. Maybe an error message. I haven't taken a look at the javascript.

Here's the slashdot link that I found everything from. Not sure if this is as exploitable (running code) as the IE version. But can't be too safe.

As such, I'm keeping it normal severity, but marked security.
