Here’s how it works:
From Wired magazine:
“On a compromised website, a key jacker creates a hidden dialog box asking if you want to run a downloadable file, then induces you to press R – for Run – by including the letter in a fake Captcha.”

Oh, and while I’ve got you here, why not take our poll to guess the right definition for “cloud washing”. If we get enough votes for the correct answer, I’ll give everyone a virtual high-five!
