MySpace, which recently was dubbed the most visited site on the Internet, has been attacked in the past by scripts with similar methods of spreading, Symantec noted.
The Cupertino, Calif. security giant warned that this attack was just a step away from something much more serious, in large part because of the social network’s rising popularity.
“If the payload were malicious, such as being used to carry out a secondary attack involving one of the recently discovered patched or unpatched vulnerabilities affecting Microsoft Office content, the impact could [have been] extremely high,” Symantec’s warning went.
Last week, MySpace was used to spread adware created by Zango, the company formerly known as 180solutions.
Until MySpace adresses this issue, don’t view any MySpace profiles. They should come out with a fix soon and you will be back up and running :).
