IE users be extra careful about this.

There is a malware around, hiding itself as an ActiveX script. You will get a pop-up asking you if you want to install a certain component from certified companies.

IT IS A VIRUS AND NOT FROM A CERTIFIED COMPANY!

I saw it using "innocent" names like
-Windows
-Java
-Quick Time

It hides in sites that supports RSS feeder, and unfortunately, I almost got it from the main site of My-Neoromace T_T But I saw it also on FanFiction.net and other blogs.
So far, Firefox users didn't report those scripts, but be careful anyway.

You can find a bit more of info here.

And I made this warning so that people wouldn't get it...

You must not press Ok, install or whatever it will say, press the X in the top-right corner untill it gives up.

So Yuu, you probably are safe. LenxKaho you probably aren't, run your antivirus on all your hard-drive.

Unfortunately, I'm here bringing bad news. T_T

Last IE security update didn't fix this problem, so the menace goes on.

Under certain circumstances, even Firefox users can get those scripts, but they can't say exactly which circumstances.
