A new Storm site advertises a networking application...However, a mere visit to the site using an unpatched system will trigger an exploit to automatically download and execute a malicious file. Patched systems are protected but only if the users do not choose to download the file (with filename krackin.exe) and execute it themselves...The webpage is detected as Trojan-Downloader.JS.Agent.KD while the file is detected as Email-Worm.Win32.Zhelatin.KE
