    I was looking for Avatars and McAfee picked up Exploit-MhtRedir.gen from hxxp://theavatars.us/....

    I know its an old one, just thought I would put it out there in case anyone unprotected, or out of date, went looking for Avatars.

    -- Update June 24, 2004--
    It has recently been made known that some IIS servers have been remotely hacked. This exploit was utilized to redirect the client's browser to the location hxxp://217.107.218.147 containing an infected webpage causing unsolicited files to be downloaded and executed.

    This site should be blacklisted in IE-SPYAD and HOSTS files.

    What I find amusing is Microsoft has yet to issue a revision to a patch that would fix it. If this is a 2 year old known trojan, and a vuln in IE, seems to me they need to get off their padded fanny. At least McAfee was able to catch it.

    Amusing indeed and on the other hand very pathetic.
    No wonder I replaced MSIE with Firefox and recently MS Outlook with Thunderbird and without any regrets.
    Microsoft doesn't impress me anymore, too many disappointments.
    I want RESULTS from Microsoft. Just DO IT and keep your mouth shut until you are better than any competition.
    That's what I expect from Microsoft.
