Can you get virus just by visiting a website in chrome
I have a hard time believing that drive-by downloads can actually happen without a user's assistance (e.g. without the user clicking a popup and downloading a program).
To test this, I've set up a virtual machine with IE 6 on it (no updates!), but then I got stuck -- when I looked at Norton's Top 100 Dirtiest websites, all of them seemed clean (clicking on their report says they're not infected). Subsequently browsing a couple confirmed this point.
Is a drive-by download even possible? Any simple proof/examples of sites that do this?
