Worm lurks behind MySpace profiles

CNET News.com: "A worm is targeting MySpace users, compromising their 'About me' pages and infecting visitors to them, Symantec has warned.
When a logged-in MySpace user goes to another member's 'About me' page affected by the ACTS.Spaceflash worm, they are quietly redirected to a URL that holds a malicious Macromedia Flash file, the security company said in an advisory on Spaceflash Tuesday. That file, in turn, will replace the visitor's own 'About me' page with one that is compromised. "
