Microsoft Giant

Microsoft have released a beta version of their AntiSpyware program. This uses technology from Giant who were acquired by Microsoft in December. Fast work. Co-incidentally, the first reported exploit targeted at Firefox has surfaced. A vulnerability allows the url for a downloaded file to be masked. This in the week that Firefox is reported to have grown in use to 7.4% of the market. Also this week, eBay announced that they will roll out their own messaging service to get round phishing scams targeted at eBay users. The My Messages inbox for eBay users is similar to that used by online banks, such as smile.
