Malicious VBS Script; Mailbag
Malicious VBS Script; Mailbag

We received a report from a reader that his users encountered a website containing malicious VBS script. It is detected as VBS_REDLOF.A. We have notified the website owner for necessary action.

During this Thanksgiving Day, we received a few readers sending us some appreciation notes. We are glad to receive all the words of encouragement. It is true that the Net is never quiet. There will still be probes, scans and attacks going on, regardless whether it is day or night. There is no holiday for such activities. And we do see and receive reports on vulnerabilities and exploits almost everyday. Usually we only mention those with high criticality/impact and/or software being widely deployed.

Nevertheless, if your systems and networks are properly secured, you will be able to spend your holidays and weekends in peace. In any case, ISC still works seven days a week, so we are around to watch the Internet weather.

Wish everyone has a nice weekend!
