Unexpected Reality In Search of American Idol
If you were searching the Internet for videos of the American Idol TV show, you might have received a bigger dose of reality than you were expecting. Unfortunately, one of the more popular video link aggregators was hosting infected advertisements on their site.
Users of Symantec security products would have also detected and blocked this particular attack as Bloodhound.Exploit.213. Fortunately, our visits show that the ad network cleaned up this particular rogue advertisement a while ago, but nevertheless it serves as a reminder—Symantec recommends that users should avoid such sites and directly visit the website of the official owner of the content.
