For about a week now, there has been an Ad on MySpace that installs spyware on your computer via a Windows bug.


More than one million MySpace users could have been caught out by a banner advert that installs spyware via a Windows bug.

Those who fell victim were bombarded with pop-up adverts and had their net browsing habits monitored by the malicious software.

Reports suggest the advert has been running on MySpace for about a week.

The discovery of the rogue advert is only the latest in a series of security problems MySpace has suffered.

This honestly doesn't surprise me in the slightest. I'm going to stay away from Micro$oft I.E from now on and use FireFox.

I advise you, if you use MySpace that is, to do the same... Mind you, this is probably happening on other websites too!
