Image: Web site exploit targets Sony code
A Web page discovered by Websense's security labs that is designed to exploit security flaws in a rootkit uninstaller program issued by Sony BMG Music Entertainment. According to Websense, visitors' PCs can become infected when they visit the site. Any user who has downloaded and run the Sony uninstaller program is susceptible to this attack, Websense says. In this example, users' machines are restarted upon accessing the site, although the site's creators could have designed it to cause serious damage, Websense warns.
