Automatically install malicious Dashboard widget


This is an interesting web page that describes how a web page can automatically install a Dashboard widget.  It also looks like Apple does not provide a way for you to remove an installed Dashboard widget. 


This web page installs a moderately malicious widget.  In order to remove it, you will have to manually remove it and restart the Dashboard.


Apple need to prevent these types of attacks.
