Mass SQL injection attack affects over 200,000 URLs

The attack was originally detected in early December, 2011. It currently affects ASP sites and Coldfusion, as well as all versions of MSSQL.

Users that are successfully redirected are exposed to either a fake Adobe Flash page requesting that they update their player, or scareware also known as fake security software.

Interesting how it mentions using FF's noscript for security, but does not provide a solution for IE.

That solution would be:

Internet Options > Security tab > Security level > Custom level > Disable Scripting.

Yes but your disabling 100% scripting like that. With noscript you can choose which scripts to allow or block per page and per use.
