    The Dutch newspaper site telegraaf.nl was today (06 Sept 2012) linking to malware.
    Dutch official "National Cyber Security Centre" warning in Dutch:
    http://www.waarschuwingsdienst.nl/R... telegraaf.nl serveert link naar malware.html

    The malware seems to be Live Security Platinum fake antivirus.

    At 16.00 hour (Dutch time) the malware has been removed (that is some 5 hours ago).

    Several Dutch sites are discussing it.
    For example tweakers.net :

    I haven't read that far too long discussion, but I noticed that Erik Loman (HitmanPro) posted there a link to youtube how to clean it with HitmanPro:

    It is not enough we secure our machines they need to keep their servers similarly secured.

    Only systems with outdated versions of Java or Adobe Reader were vulnerable.
