Dan Goodin, reporting for ArsTechnica:
Fortunately, the malware was detected by F-Secure and likely competing antivirus packages as well. Additionally, a large percentage of connections to the attacker servers failed. On top of that, NanoCore runs only on Windows, so people visiting on machines running other operating systems were immune to the attack.
Two lessons to take from this:
- Don’t use Windows.
- Don’t use Adobe Flash.
You’ll thank me later.
