Software made can sometimes do tasks that was unexpected by the original coder. This includes the ability to write into a process, and then direct the process to execute the added code. Software to browse the Internet is not immune to this and with the ability of a browser to follow instruction from an external webpage; it may be possible that the browser is requested to compromise itself. The effect on the user is either a crashed browser, of which the inserted code continues to run, or the inserted code ensure that the user has no idea of what has just eventuated. Simply by driving by a webpage, opening it up, a computer can be compromised, this is the trouble with drive-by downloads.

This seminar which shares the findings will hold in Manetic on 22nd January including the problems of IE8 and its patch early last week, this Java 0-day, along with ongoing techniques for protecting vulnerable systems at home and in the enterprise.
