New threat from 'fileless' bots?
My wife just read about a new malware threat that infects computers after users click on certain banners after visiting certain Russian news links. Evidently the technique is expected to spread.
The article, parts of which I almost understood, referred to Java vulnerabilities and suggested a security patch called CVE-2011-3544, and they also mentioned using a Geo Filter.
Is this for real, and if so, what should I do to protect my wife's Vista and my Ubuntu systems?
Thanks very much -once again- for your help.
