Came across this in my morning reading:

Looks like this and the infamous .NET plugin have already been added to the blocklist:

This latest one DID try to add itself to my Firefox when I launched it a few minutes ago. I sure as heck didn't ask for it, any more than I'd asked for the .NET plug-in earlier this summer.

Grrrr.

Good thing I did not have it running, let alone that 20 new exploits are already been found, including one that affects NTOSKRNL, that means when I get back, I need to install the updates before running firefox, thankfully I am using my cell phone(not a Nokia one) to using the web on this.
