Troj/SWFDL-G is a version of the Poison Ivy Trojan that is used in web-based attacks connected with a ‘zero day’ hole in Internet Explorer to affect targeted Windows PCs. Troj/SWFDL-G exploits the Java vulnerability that takes over most supported versions of Internet Explorer (6, 7, 8 and 9) and Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2003 and 2008 PCs. The vulnerability can be remotely exploited using a website created to target the hole. A remote code execution vulnerability exists in an Internet Explorer function for accessing an object that has been eliminated or not properly allocated. This vulnerability can hijack a system’s memory in order to enable hackers run a malicious code with the consent of the Internet Explorer user.
