IE7 Zero-Day Exploit: JS_DLOAD.MD

Posted on December 13, 2008  in Technology

Trend Micro reported that there is new malware called JS_DLOAD.MD found in the wild that exploits a vulnerability of Internet Explorer 7(IE7) browser. The report mentioned that the malicious file was uploaded to several websites (albeit unknowingly) and if downloaded by users will then download several other malware including some Trojan Spyware that steals account information for popular online games (Lineage and Legend of Mir) and a rootkit. More information can be found on their malware blog.

Last week I posted some info on malicious Firefox in this blog also and this week its IE7’s turn 🙂  Let’s hope that MS patch this bug soon. Maybe next week it will be Apple/Mac’s turn 🙂
