    Hello---I just found the website that hit me with all those downloader trojans. I wondered if anyone knows how a webpage can do this to a browser without oking the download? VISIT AT OWN RISK h**p://www.lyricsdomain.com/18/ricky_nelson/louisiana_man.html
    Looks innocent--was looking for lrics for my dad and when I hit the MP3 link--that started 5 days of hell trying to find what happened and clean my machine.
    I was hoping someone who knows what they are doing to visit and find out exactly what exploit this is? BE CAREFUL

    The website that the mp3 link points to is in both Hpguru's Hosts file and Eric Howes' IE-SpyAd, which means it's certainly a suspect site of some sort.

    Very much justified. I know it spreads lop.com
    Maybe more.
