Google unveiled the Cr-48 notebook last week in a soft launch of their ChromeOS operating system. And this week, naysayers are calling it a waste of time.

Is ChromeOS a waste of time? That depends... ChromeOS may or may not manage to win consumers over to cloud computing, but there definitely could be some useful side-effects from Google's efforts.

There's a 0-Day PDF exploit taking advantage of a vulnerability found in Adobe Reader and Acrobat 9.2 and earlier.

These screenshots demonstrate that when the PDF file is opened in Adobe Acrobat/Reader it attempts to download an executable file. The server has been abused but is currently active. The executable that is downloaded searches for and encrypts certain files and then uploads them to another server. Adobe plans to make an update available on January 12th, 2009 (almost a month from now).

Over the last several weeks, we've been monitoring a rash of ransomware campaigns across Europe, in which messages, supposedly from the local police, are displayed demanding that a fine must be paid in order to unlock the computer.

We wrote about a Finnish language variant last month. Attacks are still quite active according to our statistics. Even when somebody is savvy enough to recognize the message is a fake, the malware's accusations of offensive materials having been discovered on the user's hard drive creates a chilling effect, which has likely prevented some folks from seeking outside help.
