    ESET will have access to the link you posted. However, don't post links to sites that may have malware on them. Thanks.

    Probably because IE uses ActiveX whereas Firefox doesn't, and it's most likely an ActiveX exploit. ActiveX is probably the main reason why Firefox is 'safer' than IE and you should use Firefox wherever possible.
