myspace-tomIf you are around me often enough to hear my various pontifications, then you are no doubt already aware of my opinion regarding the excruciatingly popular social networking site MySpace. Today, I found the following bit of news from the washingtonpost.com:

An online banner advertisement that ran on MySpace.com and other sites over the past week used a Windows security flaw to infect more than a million users with spyware when people merely browsed the sites with unpatched versions of Windows, according to data collected by iDefense, a Verisign company.

Wow. In Tom we trust.

UPDATE: (Oct 2011) It turns out that Tom is a pretty cool guy, and has quite a following on Google Plus of all places. Totally worth following the guy.
