    by 'drive-by' malwares.

    i been surfing malicious sites for the past 2 hours.
    no anti virus programs, only Chrome and UAC at maximum.

    a few sites opened what i assume where malicious PDF but Chrome displayed a "Failed to Load PDF" message.

    almost all the malicious sites i've been to required the user to install a plugin or download a file and execute it.
    a few sites where able to drop files to the desktop without user intervention but they were easily thrown in the Recycle Bin.

    seems like you pretty got to install a virus yourself if you want one. :blink: :D


    is there any drive-by malware around? o_O
    if there are, i haven't found them...

    *puppy* Tip: You may want to give IE a try. Disable UAC, which equals to no Protected Mode. See what happens. Enable UAC, which equals to PM back. See what happens.

    That would make a nice test. :D Live dangerously. :thumb: :blink:

    Have you tried the Russian porn sites yet?
    I'm sure you could find something there.

    So... you went with the browser that has no known in-the-wild exploits to try to find exploits in the wild? :p haha what exactly were you expecting?

    errr, i don't know.
    i would expect that if Chrome had an encounter with a drive-by, it would at least burp.
    or fart. ;)
