Re: foxnews.com infected?

I got this popup last night when I visited foxnews.com with IE8, and the fake virus scan began in a new window.

I forced the browser closed as quickly as I could with task manager, and ran a real scan with AVG 8.5 which appeared to be clean.

Does anyone know if AVG effectively detects this infection, and/or what other steps should be taken to ensure this thing didn't get its tentacles into my system?
