The Register is reporting that hackers are luring unsuspecting users to a fake download site for IE7 by an email that purports to be from firstname.lastname@example.org. Trouble is, when they get there they aren't getting IE7 but a site loaded with trojan downloader codes. Full story here.
Whilst I'm on the subject of IE7, Yahoo have released their own version of IE7 today, even ahead of Microsoft. Great if you like the Yahoo toolbar etc. Personally I think I will wait for the clean version from Microsoft. You can check this site out for more information from Microsoft.
