New Java Applet Trojan

I read a shocking news about a new Java Applet trojan which can infect Internet Explorer even when run in Firefox. Christopher Boyd from has found a Java trojan that is capable of downloading and infecting Internet Explorer with Spyware/Adware, even is you are running another browser that supports Java such as Firefox.

It is a new hit for Java community. I hope that Sun Microsystem will release a quick patch to solve this problem. Don't forget to update your browser and also AntiVirus database.

You can find more information in the F-Secure's weblog
