Critical Trojan in the Wild - Download.Ject

There is a vulnerability in Internet Information Server 5.0 that was reported today. Websites can become infected and then infect visitors to the web sites on the infected machine. However, that being said if the System has been patched with update 835732 the system will not have the vulnerability.

Just another reason to keep your system up to date. On the client side you will be protected if you keep your antivirus updated and your security settings for Internet Explorer set properly.

For details see this Microsoft Bulletin.

A technical look at the problem can be found on SANS Internet Storm Center Handlers Diary dated June 25th.
