How to point a loaded gun at your foot.

Anyone else think that hurriedly forcing emergency calls into VOIP applications is a bad idea? How about if I mention the word "worm", or "exploit"?

Legacy emergency services are safe because we're not likely to get a human-borne virus that makes us dial for an ambulance. (Virus effects, on the other hand, are a different matter...) Mobile devices are relatively safe due to their more simplistic design, and more controlled interfaces.
