Having just had google ads syndication kicking up a trojan warning on the Kaspersky program running on my machine........
its not uncommon
Domestic appliance manufacturer Whirlpool has come under fire for failing to clean up a malware infection on one of its sites, months after it was notified of a problem by UK anti-virus firm Sophos. Sophos tried for months to clean-up its Kitchenaid.com website, without success, before going public on the problem on Friday. …
There aught to be some process in place to shut sites down.
i.e. Find a virus etc. So tell the site. Site has x number of days to clean up. If the site still isn't clean a couple of days before x runs out, send a final warning. If site is still not clean on day x, redirect their domain to a holding page stating that the site contains malicious software, with an option to continue to the site if you accept the risks.
We very much appreciate the alert, and remain fully committed to ensuring that our website is secure.
The site was taken offline once those responsible for its security were fully apprised of the situation. We have taken corrective actions and the site is now free of the malware script responsible for setting off antivirus alerts. Analysis of the malware by our support team indicates that users were at no risk prior to its removal.
Our website users, and their security and satisfaction, are very important to us. Again, we thank you for alerting us to this situation.
