Safari/IE Combo Attack

 

 

The recently discovered Safari "Carpet Bomb" exploit, just got a whole lot worse. According to Aviv Raff, the Safari exploit can be used to control Internet Explorer. IE has a flaw that allows malicious software to be run on a victims computer. You put them together, you got a zombie machine ready for shenanigans.

 

For the tag-team attack to work, users must visit a site with malicious code with Safari on a Windows machine.

 

Microsoft has issued a security advisory concerning the issue.
