Download.Ject - the worm that didn't have to be
The Download.Ject Trojan has returned to the Internet, threatening Windows users who have not installed patches from Microsoft. This new version of the worm travels through instant-messaging networks, such as AIM.
The security firm PivX warned users Friday morning of the threat. PC owners who have not downloaded and installed Microsoft patch MS04-25 are vulnerable. The new Windows XP Service Pack 2 also contains a security patch that resolves the current Download.Ject threat, which takes advantage of a weakness in the Explorer browser.
