myspace attack spreading quickly

Myspace seems to be the place to be these days with all those users, music, and an attack spreading at very high speed. The attack is flash based and will redirect users to a blog with a 9/11 rant. After that the flash is embedded into that users profile and it will continue to spread in such a manner. The attack details and also the exploit details have been posted to the net already so go give them a read if you'd like to know more about the specifics. While it can be removed and is mostly just annoying, could this be a hint of things to come? If so I can only imagine attacks becoming much more malicious in the future.
