An online banner advertisement that ran on MySpace.com and other sitesover the past week used a Windows security flaw to infect more than a million users with spyware when people merely browsed the sites with unpatched versions of Windows, according to data collected by iDefense
The threat was found by a ‘malware’ specialist while using his Linux based machine. Isn’t it nice to be able to browse the internet for dangers while in a bullet-proof suite? You gotta love that.
Yet again a reminder to drop Internet Exploder and use Firefox (or Flock).
