Netflix users in danger of unknowingly picking up malware

Quote:
Users of Silverlight, Microsoft’s answer to Adobe Flash, are in danger of having malware installed on their computers and being none the wiser, as an exploit for a critical vulnerability (CVE-2013-0634) in the app framework has been added to the Angler exploit kit.

“The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if an attacker hosts a website that contains a specially crafted Silverlight application that could exploit this vulnerability and then convinces a user to view the website,” Microsoft explained. “The attacker could also take advantage of compromised websites and websites that accept or host user-provided content or advertisements.”
