Jim Finkle from Reuters UK:

 The Forbes.com financial news site was infected by Chinese hackers with spying software that targeted specific visitors, including those at U.S. financial services and defence firms, according to two cybersecurity firms.

Hmm…Interesting, and guess how did they managed to do that:

The hackers infected Forbes.com in November with software that automatically attacked visitors by exploiting security flaws in Microsoft Corp’s Internet Explorer browser and Adobe Systems Inc’s Flash software, cybersecurity firms iSight Partners Inc and Invincea Inc said on Tuesday.

The moral of the story here boys and girls is that you should NEVER EVER use Internet Explorer and/or Adobe Flash, for the love of god, how many time people should say this over and over and over and over again!
