    I must thank mumbodog for his post on UPS malware(y)!I recently downloaded a music player from "softpedia.com" called MUSIC BEE. Music Bee allows you to have the lyrics when the song is played, for ex. BeeGees album "ONE"is one of BeeGees greatest musical treat, but the lyrics are hard to follow! Being a teenager, my eyes naturally rove around, and i looked at Zero-day exploit by Java(which we all knew is happening)!

    Admitting "ignorance" is in my view, a leap into learning. I was all the time wondering how this Java exploit works!!:) Kindly read the article :http://news.techworld.com/security/3220472/hackers-exploit-java-zero-day-bug/?intcmp=ft-mdb-rtd
    I was looking around for a good and reliable(??) lyrics download site to download lyrics for the many songs i have and here pops up "songlyrics.com" which nicely redirects you to the Russian Java exploit site and your goose is cooked! In the article, the author says 1)Oracle refuses to offer any urgent patch,
    2)IE and FF are at high risk,
    3)"Chrome seems to be safe, but that's not guaranteed,">>Thompson, the author. 4) Ormandy's workarounds(It's Greek for non-geeks like me) may work :http://isc.sans.org/diary.html?storyid=8608 and finally to round off view this site :http://krebsonsecurity.com/2010/04/unpatched-java-exploit-spotted-in-the-wild/

    I have posted many thumbnails in my time, but this certainly ranks among the top! It is called the "CRIME PACK".THANK YOU MUMBODOG FOR UNWITTINGLY WARNING ME AWAY!(GOD'S WAYS ARE MYSTERIOUS INDEED(y)(y):)! See below:
