Blacole Malware identified by Microsoft software on


There have been reports that users of Internet Explorer browsing over today have been alerted by Microsoft Security Essentials to have been affected by a certain Blacole.BW. the Item in question was apparently launched from this location:

file:C:\Users\***\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\RVUVKONX\google_com[1].htm

It seems that Microsoft’s own security software has flagged as a threat to have Blackhole Exploit Kit. This should be no cause for concern for those affected as this is most likely a false positive by MSE. Nevertheless, update your Security Essentials virus and spyware definitions just to be safe.
