You need to be aware of this worm

Quote:
When a logged-in MySpace user goes to another member's "About me" page affected by the ACTS.Spaceflash worm, they are quietly redirected to a URL that holds a malicious Macromedia Flash file, the security company said in an advisory on Spaceflash Tuesday. That file, in turn, will replace the visitor's own "About me" page with one that is compromised.


The article advises to download the newest Flash Player 9 which addresses the vulnerability and is available for download now from Adobe

This isn't the same thing as THIS is it? (Banner ad w/ WMF exploit infects roughly 1 million myspace users)?

This is why I don't have my space. EXACTLY what i thought would happen, back in JANUARY when the WMF exploit was found. All someone had to do was pay to have an ebay item on the front page, or pay for advertising on myspace or somethiing like that - and WHAM, at least a million users infected.

I friggin' KNEW it would happen. I -so- called it. lol

Well I think I made a good start! I've been getting that redirect each time I log on to myspace this past few days, I've had no interest in downloading it, I hope
it's not to late?
