Default Severe Hack Notice (All OS/Browsers)

Just a notice to general people about a sort of "hack" going around using flash and exploiting peoples routers to take control of peoples computers.

http://www.gnucitizen.org/blog/flash-upnp-attack-faq

Baiscally someone makes a sort of event in flash to go somewhere and a service "most" every router ever made has on by default will go to it and taking over the router.. to where an attacker can make you go to fake websites (even if you typed a url for a site you trust like example paypal)

Something like it could probably be done through Javascript or other things.

Overall no OS or broser is safe from it because it affects the router, further information can be read about in the url above.

SWF links/attachments (that are zip/rar/lzh etc added) will still be allowed, just take caution when going to look at them or take precautions menyioned above in the url.

P.S. Business Class 3com routers have UPnP disabled by default
