    I have had a number of clients in the past few weeks get infected with this, all of which I had on ESET SS 4.2 that have been updating daily until the infection.

    All of them used IE, firefox users dont seem to be susceptible to this attack (until infected then it affects firefox as well). They are also all browsing generally dodgey websites and clicking on things they shouldn't (general trend is teenage boys browsing free porn).

    Can anyone explain why ESS is not picking up this infection before it gets in? Any ideas which vulnerability it is exploiting (no need to poke fun at IE, we know already)?

    I am cleaning PC's and putting the user on Firefox with the Noscript plugin afterwards but would prefer it was getting blocked before it got a chance to install.

    Regards
    Ben

    Send the sample to ESET. Already said trillions of time, no AV detect the 100%.
