Spotted in the wild (like they're spotted anywhere else!)

Apparently the following happened while someone tried to view a blog post:


Click to Enlarge

A fake "your system may be infected" popup. Note the site it launches from is one of the more aggressive types (it shrinks your browser down into the bottom corner, and won't let you do anything other than cycle in an endless loop of popups until you agree to download the file being pushed).

These kind of attacks occur because of rogue adverts being pushed into advertising space, which is likely what happened here. If you are unfortunate enough to be trapped by an attack like this, don't panic - just do a CTRL+ALT+DEL and close the browser window...
