Mozilla Firefox flaw exploited on Nobel Prize website
Read more here - http://www.techspot.com/news/40884-mozilla-firefox-flaw-exploited-on-nobel-prize-website.htmlFirefox users who visited the website were silently infected with Belmoo, a Windows Trojan that gives the attacker complete control of the machine. Once successfully installed, the malware creates an executable in the \Windows\temp directory and sets it to run on startup via the registry. It also attempts to connect to two Internet addresses, both which point to a server in Taiwan, through which someone can control the system.
