Continued Sighting of Download.Ject

While the majority of the traffic has died down, we are still receiving reports of administrators finding log files with indicators of msits.exe download. We would like to remind all users that even thought the main issue is over, the same exploit is continuing to be used by web sites out there for malicious purposes.
