Can this be interpreted as a malware (procede the following steps with caution).
After visiting miniclip.com/games/super-gerball/en/ without me clickiing on anything and confirming that I want to Install a game, a new folder is created in my Windows Start Menu and in a Documents and Settings folder.
Although I believe no harm is actually done with this installation, can attacker use this method to install a malware? How can I prevent this, what options should I change in my Firefox browser?
Thank you both for answering. I did scan my computer and no problems were detected.
I did not gave permission to install anything. I even removed installed files and went to the webpage again. Just loading the page (not clicking on absolutely anything) was enough for new files to be copied on my computer again.
What I'm really concerned is that some other malicious page do the same but does not leave obvious traces like Miniclip did. I did not explicitely downloaded any files yet they were installed in folder outside Flash folders.
