I kept getting reports from my Kaspersky that it was blocking "malicious objects" while I was on the site yesterday, so I think something has been going on the last couple days. My favorite site, my PS3, what next, my bank? Dear Hackers/cyber losers: kill yourself. Sincerely, Me.

I use Chrome on a Vaio and haven't received any warnings from Norton or any viruses/spyware either. Could it have anything to do with the browser?
Btw this thread turned me on to the existence of the android app, which I promptly downloaded. So thanks for that haha

Blackhole Toolkit Website 5 attacks.  I am not a compter guy, but Googling to see what the web dudes think, it is suspected to be triggered by ads tied to AdSense, so I guess only those with the tracking cookies that cause AdSense to show the target poisoned ad will get the alert.  Is that plausible or are the IT guys going to forced to sigh and roll their eyes at me again?  I know I deserve it.

Somewhere along the line, people assumed their private information was secure. Now a research by computer security organization viaForensics has clued the tech world into a nasty fact: Mobile applications by LinkedIn, Netflix, and Square place delicate, unencrypted data in a plain text file on your mobile machine. These files can be simple pickings for the unscrupulous hackers of the world. I found this here: Study: Major mobile apps compromise your personal data, newstype.com
