LizaMoon on the loose and it’s no Joke

Unfortunately, the following is not an April Fools prank. Security provider Websense is reporting the fastest spreading mass-injection campaign they’ve ever encountered.   This attack, named LizaMoon after the first domain discovered with the virus, is believed to have infected well over 500,000 domains and still going.  The purpose?   To spread a fake AV program called “Windows Stability Center”.  Sadly, at this time, fewer than half of all AV programs are catching the fake AV attack.   Make sure you  don’t fall for this fake AV scam.  If something pops up in your browser saying you have an infection, close the browser.
