I just read this message on the homepage of the very useful site wheregoes.com

Quote:
WARNING:
Wheregoes' homepage was hacked and set to download a file from hXXp://782308434/jb.jar to every visitor's computer. If you have visited the site between April 14 and April 21, then please check your computer for viruses (I believe the virus involved might be Lofog!gen3). The homepage is now safe. Keep writing to me with your feedback - I wouldn't have found out about this if a user hadn't let me know that the site was crashing.


(Edit: munged "http" in the quotation.)

That certainly helps to explain why, when I visited the site for the last week or so, every browser I used crashed (apart from Safari). I thought that they had modified the scripts but their frontend looks pretty script free, at least until you click the button. I had checked the page source but couldn't work out the domain format of the hxxp://782308434 address.
