Seattle P-I: Attack Site!

Reported Attack Site!

If you clicked over to a P-I story while using the newest version of Firefox you might recognize the image above. According to the P-I itself:

Part of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer Web site was compromised by a computer virus that appears to have spread through online advertisements for NWAuto.

The ads have been removed and the website is safe. Unfortunately for the P-I its status as an “Attack Site!” has not been resolved yet.

    It affected the Seattle Times, too (they share nwsource.com resources). I reported the issue around 3:00pm today, but nobody’s going to respond, as usual.

    Their other major issue is that when something from their blog shows up in Google News (beta), it always looks like:

    Seattle Post Intelligencer – 1 hour ago [link]www.seattlepi.com[/link] — Creates a link to the url between the link tags. [link title=”Seattle Post-Intelligencer”]www.

    But it should look like:

    Seattle Post Intelligencer – 1 hour ago http://www.seattlepi.com/blahblah.html Blah blan blah the first 2 lines of the blog post go here blah blah blah.

    Good job, IT. You’re fired.
