    Damn, this looks bad. I hope that the next NOD32 update covers this crap... it better come awful soon...

    BTW, does using Mozilla, Opera, or other "alternative" browsers provide any degree of protection?

    Ran the the url in the script through Opera and got this:

    Illegal address
    url:ms-its:C:\WINDOWS\Help\iexplore.chm::/iegetsrt.htm

    I'll wait a while and try it with IE.

    Javascript is used here. Easy enough to disable but destroys some of the perks.

    Hmm... Script Defender intercepts Javascript, doesn't it?
