Victims of the leak receive a phishing email that contains a link to a website.
Here’s the real problem users not reading their emails to verify it is legit and clicking on poisoned links deserve what they get…Seems like no matter how many are told not to open unknown emails from unknown emailers and rather then emailing the real contact to find out about the email they do the “go-happy” click of life and get nailed…

seems like tomorrow’s Flash will have similar vulnerabilities too…
maybe it’s time to kill off flash for good!
support html5… and fix the video/streamed media bugs that execuse malware code…
far too many exploits of all stripe when running/precachceing video/animated web page code!

One likes to dream there is no exploits but there most likely will be…rather it’s the users “happy go click” that needs to be checked.
