MySpace Attacked by Flash Worm
A number of personal pages on the social networking site MySpace.com were attacked over the weekend using a security flaw in Macromedia Flash a flaw that Adobe released a patch to fix just last week. The worm spreads each time a MySpace user visits an infected user profile page.
MySpace sent out a notice to all of its users late yesterday, saying the worm only appears to have affected people with vulnerable Flash players. Security Fix - Brian Krebs on Computer and Internet Security - (washingtonpost.com)
