Netflix users in danger of unknowingly picking up malware
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.”
