By the way my firewall says the exploit is accessing "sum4count.net" so I'd recommend folks using Internet Exploder to edit:

\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

and add a line such as:

127.0.0.99 sum4count.net

which will make the comain unreachable.

I read a recommendation on this forum to use No-script add on for firefox (http://noscript.net/) works like a charm!

If you're running noscript don't forget:

1) Block everything by default
2) Only approve domains you trust, and only allow what is needed for the page
3) Don't approve sites you won't visit often in the permanent whitelist - use temp permissions where possible
4) Turn on IFRAME blocking as it is off by default
