Re: foxnews.com infected?

So now that you guys have proven something's up with Foxnews.com who's gonna contact Foxnews.com so their tech folks can clean it up?

Fox News isn't necessarily serving the infected ad. Their techs might be able to take it out of rotation on the site, but to take the ad down the originating server needs to be identified and disinfected.

I did, and I also reported it to stopbadware.org as well...

Hopefully it'll be cleaned up by now.

I can confirm there is an infection of the site.

The site is infected through ads and it is these that cause the problem. There can be numerous ads involved, but I have singled out one for sure.
