Thousands of Sites Exploiting Security Flaw


More than 2,000 unique Web sites have been rigged to exploit the animated cursor security flaw in Microsoft's software, according to security vendor Websense Inc.

Those Web sites are either hosting exploit code or are redirecting Internet users to sites with bad code, Websense's blog reported Monday.

The number of Web sites engineered to exploit the problem has jumped considerably since the vulnerability was publicly disclosed by Microsoft on March 29. It will likely continue to rise until patches are applied across corporate and consumer PCs, said Ross Paul, senior product manager for Websense.
