Re: Another WinFixer infiltration...this time on www.wfaa.com
How can you - or anyone else - get infected by simply visiting a website? You must be using unpatched old browsers. I tryed to infect my system with Winfixer...just for fun...but I failed. I would have had to download and run .exe file to get infected.

Use HushTools or GnuPG/PGP to encrypt any email before sending it to me to protect our privacy.
I looked around at hxxp://www.wfaa.com/localnews/investigates/ for a bit and didn't see anything, I used IE7 BTW. For security I'm running WinXP SP2 (all patches), NOD security suite beta, SandBoxIE, and IE-SPYAD. The only ugly thing I found at that site was the redirect "become a member" page.

Both vulnerabilities involve surfing the Internet.

MACs are inherently secure, and don't need to be patched or updated because they are impervious to exploits/viruses/hacking, aren't they?
