Everyone’s replacing Internet Explorer

Even the malware!

Facetime Security Labs discovered a new worm affecting Yahoo Messenger which installs new browser function over IE, and redirects the user to a new spyware-laden home page.

Facetime called it:

“..the first instance of a complete web browser hijack without the user’s awareness.”

I call it “thank goodness for iChat.”
