That'll teach El Reg for those nasty articles about AVG a while back

Or maybe it's just another reason to dump AVG...

Nope, nothing on a Mac can stop real hackers getting through!

come on .. can el reg please fix the link so I can read the article ?

hours later and having same problem

"Threat Blocked: Exploit Link to Exploit Site ( type 1526 )"

I'd say it's AVG except it's only on the link for this particular article

for the AVG bashers .. had AVG free for almost as long as it's been around, 8-9 years I think, and haven't had an infection in all these years, and no false positives .. this might be a case of that .. but I have no clue how an internal site page here could be written in such a way that it seems to be serving an exploit ... unless ...

please check what probably is a *first* loading advert serve ..

So they had (at least) 2 pages infected; but what about the other (more than) 999,998 pages?

Aren't there other "interesting" sites infected, perhaps more extensively?

This is no more interesting than saying (perhaps breathlessly), " there are more than a million automobile accidents, and at least two of them are (insert your favorite car model)".
