    eeh;
    Is there any doubt that the "social networking" sites are the most fertile seeding grounds for propagation of mals ?

    The connected generation are connecting in more ways than they might think..:cautious:

    According to Symantec, 91% of phishing attacks now involve social networking sites.

    Does this show the update icon in the tray before the popup?

    Yesterday I had the tray icon show but when i hovered over it it always showed
    0 % then it disappeared. No sure what that was.

    Now u r becoming a true paranoid. :)

    It,s not a true pop up. I played with this page. It,s a pop up like picture in the page. So no tray icon I think.

    AVG and Antivir both detected it in real time. D plus will not let it go anywhere! GesWall stopped it dead and so was the ThreatFire. Poor malware.:rolleyes: :eek:

    I can tell you when I went to Windows Download page and did the SP3 update, i lost my Windows firewall. I owe that to a bad install. Can't turn it back on either. But nope I am not too paranoid today.
    just running Onecare and boclean on this test box along with VMWare.
