The Little Blue Browser


I never cease to be amazed at the sleazy tricks that online scammers have when it comes to trying to dupe inexperienced Internet users. Windows users might see such a prompt if they visited one of several porn sites that try to exploit a series of Internet Explorer flaws to drop "Trojan horse" programs on the victim's PC that directs IE to microsofft.org.

I'm a little mystified as to why Microsoft hadn't already registered this rather obvious permutation of its trademark (this one was created in February) among several others I found within just a few seconds of searching the Web.
