Re: foxnews.com infected?

I am also interested in how it "hides" as well...

Last infection I got on one of my machines (first one in years), was likely due to an iframe. That, or the unlikely chance that an infected gmail "news ticker" (whatever its called above the inbox - which I've disabled since then...) did it.

iframes have also been forbidden in noscript ever since that.

Agree with a post earlier - this is why I have zero qualms about using adblockplus, and especially noscript. Two of the best plugins IMHO.

Was shocked, however, to still get an infection with these two plugins......
iFrames have only been "forbidden" on the one machine I saw the infection on. On others, I've left noscript at its default settings for the most part.
