I have twice picked up malware viruses from reputable newspaper sites just by clicking on a story link. The viruses were not picked up by real-time ESET NOD scanner. These malware viruses have been of the type "Your computer is infected" and then a "scanning box" comes up and "scans" the system in 5 seconds, finding "alleged viruses" - the boxes cannot be closed by the usual methods. Both times I was able to get into task manager, kill all the iexpore processes, and (in one case) remove the offending registry entries in the RUN and RUNONCE folders. Nothing else running looked suspicious. I immediately did a full scan and nothing is found. I am running ESET 4.0.424.0, Virus Defs current at 5971, Windows XP SP 3. Is it possible the newspaper's website is infected and pushing down viruses by clicking on a story link?
