Porn browser serves up malicious software


A Web browser that promises to help the user surf to explicit Web sites bundles malicious software, a researcher has warned.

"It comes with its very own rootkit," Chris Boyd, director of research at FaceTime Communications wrote on his blog Wednesday.

The program, called NetBrowserPro, is advertised in poor English on a Web site as a tool with a purpose: "NetBrowserPro is the internet browser which aimed to the one thing--help you to watch porn. Secure, confidential, quick and free." 'Porn browser' serves up malicious software | News.blog | CNET News.com
