I was looking at Technorati a couple of days ago. I clicked on the “Help” link. McAfee popped up that it caught a virus and deleted it. I then clicked help again and my machine got infected with a version of the “Internet Security 2010” virus. What is that all about? Was it another bogus ad pushed through to mainstream sites? I don’t know, but it took me 3 hours to clean it up. I’ll post about the cleanup in a little bit. Has anyone else experienced this with Technorati?
I was running Windows XP with IE7.
