Im PDF-Betrachter "Adobe Reader" wurde eine Sicherheitslücke entdeckt, durch die ein Angreifer die Kontrolle über einen PC übernehmen oder Schadsoftware installieren kann. Dazu genügt bereits das Öffnen speziell präparierter PDF-Dokumente.

So with all this badware, is the Internet a more dangerous place to be?

It’s a tough question, Weinstein says, but he believes things are getting better, largely because people are getting smarter about what they do online. “I think the bad guys are always trying to stay a step ahead of the average users,” he said.

With the volume of malware attacks growing so rapidly, Over the first six months of 2007, anti-virus applications market leader Symantec found a total of 212,101 new malware variants, an astonishing 185 percent increase over the second half of 2006, totaling an average of well over 1100 unique samples arriving per day.
