  • Flash player exploit installs keylogger

    [I'll post a 2nd thread in the WoW section directing here, for those who don't leave the ghetto. ;)]

    Download the latest Flash update here:

    Adobe has just released a new version of Flash Player to deal with malware in the wild that's exploiting a vulnerability in previous versions. A major use is to install a keylogger to steal the passwords of WoW players, but I'm sure it can also be used to create spam zombies as well as break into companies.

    The attacks are also associated with SQL injection attacks on websites to create dump points for the keyloggers.

    One website that suffered an attack is providing information on other victim sites involved:

    Scary stuff. Thanks for sharing.

    3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

      Quick question because I'm off to work...I'll read more about it later, but will ad-aware or other spyware cleaner take care of this keylogger after updating adobe?
