Who iframed Easter Rabbit

In the last couple of days, a lot of threads were posted at several different forums where people were complaining about being infected via a trustworthy site.
What happened was, many of these sites were hacked and were injected with a malware embedded iframe. This iframe launched a javascript to infect the visitors of the site with a Trojan downloader.

It's still amazing how many people got infected with this, because this is actually an older exploit that was being used - the MS06-014 exploit - Vulnerability in the Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC).
This means that MANY have not updated their Windows for years, since this was actually patched in april 2006 - almost 2 years ago!

So once again, I cannot stress enough how important it is to update your Windows - don't wait - update TODAY!
