Description of Ambient execution:
Most victims of online attacks thought they’d never fall for an Internet scam. To prove just how vulnerable your personal information can be, Internet Explorer created an entire phony bank and an "inheritance store" in New York's financial district that operated just like an online phishing scam. All it took was an unbelievable offer and halfway credible signage to convince New Yorkers to gladly hand over all sorts of ridiculously intimate personal information.
