You think infosec.volubis.com was dissing us?  BTW, haven't gotten spyware
one since switching to FireFox 6 months ago. And the extensions rock!

Quote:
Detailed information on a brace of unpatched vulnerabilities in Internet
Explorer has been posted onto a dull disclosure mailing list. The flaws
involve a cross-zone scripting vuln and a bug in IE's Local Resource Access
and pose an "extremely critical" risk to Windows users, according to
security firm Secunia. The vulnerabilities affect both Internet Explorer 6
and Outlook.

The vulnerabilities are actively being exploited in the wild to install
adware on users' systems, security researchers warn. Other exploits -
include computer viruses - based on the same techniques of tricking users
into visiting a maliciously constructed website housing malign script could
follow.
