Another possible sighting of SWF:CVE-2007-0071 [Expl]
« on: October 25, 2008, 09:40:19 AM »
My first malware detection by Avast!

2008-10-25   7:49:55 PM   1224917395   SYSTEM   1212   Sign of "SWF:CVE-2007-0071 [Expl]" has been found in "hxxp://www.game-advertising-online.com/b/hc/fs2.swf?clickTAG=http://www.game-advertising-online.com/index.php%3Fsection=redir%26zon=265%26zid=48a398b1e090f" file.

Aborted connection and put game-advertising-online in my hosts file and restricted sites.

Just a heads-up if anyone cares to check if it is a FP.

Please disable the link by changing it to hxxp.

LinkScanner found no exploits with this site, so it's an FP.

It appears to be a vulnerability for those who have earlier versions of Flash Player.

Have you updated to Flash Player 10, a4nic8er? If not, you need to get the latest version here.

Yes I have (on my main computers), thanks. I discovered the link when I fired up my old Win98SE/Tbird 1200 which I do every few months just to see what may be out there for the unprotected and unwary.
