MySpace Serves Up Adware

Well, to be fair, it wasn't their fault. It's only named because the popularity and, I assume, the computer saviness of the average user, which allowed for a massive adware infection of users' computers. Brian Krebs on reported that an ad on MySpace and other sites distributed adware using a vulnerability in IE that Microsoft patched in January. Ok kids, once again:

  • Download and patch your Windows box.
  • Don't use Internet Explorer.
  • Don't use MySpace! =)
