Submission + - London Stock Exchange Web Site Serving Malware-> 1

wiredmikey writes: The Web Site for the London Stock Exchange (LondonStockExchange.Com) has apparenty been serving up malware to some users very recently, according to a current Google Safe Browsing Report. Currently Google has identified the site as unsafe, and trying to visit the site using Firefox, Safari, or Chrome will result in a warning to the user. As of 7:32PM PST on Sunday, February 27th, the warnings were still being displayed.

The site has NOT been hacked, and there is a big difference. The alert is likely a result of "Malvertising",, a growing method for attackers to distribute malware via advertising tags
