The web is not a safe place to be these days!

SANS – Internet Storm Center – Cooperative Cyber Threat Monitor And Alert System – Current Infosec News and Analysis
Interesting to see new categories of attacks gaining in popularity, as highlighted in this handlers’ diary entry.
Adding malicious content to hosted websites is a handy way for malware authors to ensure that their code will be executed, rather than relying on e-mails with links which (hopefully) are a less useful vector (Surely by now a decent percentage of Internet users don’t go around clicking links sent in e-mail….)
Also another good example (as if anyone needed more) of why patching is critical to protecting PC’s at the moment.
