Re: foxnews.com infected?

There was a story on ZDNet about Fox News being hit by malvertising ads:

Thanks for posting that. Here's the direct link to the story: »blogs.zdnet.com/security/?p=3140
Apparently it was reported on other sites as well as this one.

The article says Fox got rid of it.

That article was posted on 4/15...I think we know from this thread that the problem was still going on even in the last day or two.

Whether it's been cleaned up today, I don't know.

I have been monitoring random pages on foxnews on and off since early on 04/21, and have not experienced any incidence of the malware. Not a testimonial that it is clean, though I have not seen any other reports of malware either during that time.
