I was just wondering if it's possible to get spyware by simply going on a site. Assume that the browser is Firefox and that you're going to the site that has won an award for most "Shoot the Cowboy and Get a Free PS3" pop-ups and it also has multiple links to install things, all of which contain trojans galore. But I'm only referring to if you wer to simply visit the site and not touch anything. Thanks a lot.
