    Stuff like this is becoming more and more common. I wonder if anyone actually pays the ransom?

    But hey, at least the insurance policy has a $1,000 deductible in a case like this. lol.

    There is a javascript attack that is effective in defeating ASLR on 22 different architectures.

    That defeating ASLR open a computer up to infection, I would say that these attacks will become more common in the world. I would also say that governments and others with critical data will begin applying basic computer security in not allowing the intranet to access the internet.

    More information on the ASLR attack:

    Videos of the ASLR attack in action:



    The attack is probably already written into Metasploit and it is only a few days old.
