New Web Site Drive-By Threat

Web Attack That Poisons Google Results Gets Worse - Business Center - PC World

... The attack, which has intensified in recent days, can be found on
several thousand legitimate Web sites, according to security experts.
It targets known flaws in Adobe's software and uses them to install a
malicious program on victims' machines, CERT said.

up-to-date security software, you should be protected from these
attacks. To date, they've worked by hitting the victim with malicious
PDF or Flash files.
