Re: Another WinFixer infiltration...this time on www.wfaa.com

said by sivran:

WFAA's site serving up malware ads AGAIN? Excuse me while I go block their site entirely. The one single infection my network's experienced was through a bad ad on that site several months ago.
I suppose I should mention again that it was Google ads served by Zedo that caused the problems on the travelpod website.But since there's no way to predict the source of the ads, you would have wider protection if you were to block Zedo, rather than WFAA.

Here's all the sites I could glean from my hosts file:

Thanks for the list. The wfaa block is a stop-gap measure until I get proper filters in place. Heck, my dad surfs porn when I'm not around, and yet it was wfaa that got him. What is the world coming to?

Looks like the current MVPS Hosts file!

Edit: Well looks like you posted as I was. My reply was to your earlier post with the MVPS entries.
