The technical report (pdf) outlines the concept of cruising the Web with multiple automated Windows XP clients - some unpatched, some partially patched, some patched completely - to hunt for Web sites that exploit browser vulnerabilities.

There's plenty of blame to spread around. People who are maliciously exploiting systems deserve the majority.

basic character 101.

it's what you do with you life and how it affects others that you will be measured.
