More malware in advertisements on an MSN network

February 21st 2007 in Uncategorized

You can see the report, and screenshots, here:

I’m hoping to get in touch with the magazine’s correspondent to gather more information about the incident – times and dates etc – and yes, I’ve sent a heads up to Microsoft to make sure that the adverts have been neutralised as part of getting rid of the Windows Live Messenger banner ad malware.
