[vox] [Semi-OT] Abusing internet explorer for fun and profit



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Open http://tinyurl.com/3xdn9 on a windows system in internet explorer ;-)

It redirects to a URL I constructed that fools Internet explorer into 
displaying http://www.microsoft.com/linux/ while actualy displaying 
http://www.mslinux.org/

Uses a slightly expanded version of the IE exploit that is explained at 
http://www.secunia.com/advisories/10395/

Can be used by identity theifs, spammers, and other evil-doers.

Microsoft has yet to release a patch.
