Download.Ject - the worm that didn't have to be

Monday, 23 August 2004, 12:31 PM EST

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.
