Windows 7: Malware attempting a new trick

22 Oct 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

My friend came across that webpage at school. I dont know how because he was just on Google because it just popped up. Anyway we tried to navigate away from the page but Firefox froze and crashed. After that he just reopened Firefox and it worked fine. I have no idea if the malware made it on to the network because the computer worked fine after the attack.

Instead of flooding their server, you make this warning appear and lots of people won't go to the site.
