Yet another IE exploit threatens

This is not a broken record. This is not a broken record. This is not...

Another seriously mailicious attack has surfaced that exploits flaws in Internet Explorer. This one uses a keylogger to record and mail off the passwords and account info of those using online banking applications. The delivery vessel for this exploit? A pop-up ad.

Those of you who think you are immune because you don't assent to silly dialog boxes or surf like newbies will want to think twice about using IE in light of these recent exploits. One of the TR staffers, who I shall not name, found a keylogger on his PC in the past few days. I'd recommend running a full scan with AdAware and switching your default browser to Firefox, at least until WinXP SP2 becomes available.
