Worm Hits MySpace

A worm spreading through MySpace is embedding JavaScript code into users' profiles that redirects visitors to a site claiming the U.S. government was behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks, a security company warned Monday.

The unnamed worm isn't malicious, said Symantec researchers, but the malformed Shockwave Flash (.swf) file containing the payload embeds JavaScript into the profile of any MySpace user who views the .swf file. Worm Hits MySpace - Technology News by TechWeb
