LOOKS LIKE THE NAT GEO SITE IS COMPROMISED.

Got a malware warning on 2nd picture.

I'd stay away from that site for a bit.

It's a embedded flash gallery, so if one picture is harbouring malware they must all be.

The gallery container has javascript for various stats sites including google analytics. There was nothing unusual in it.

Where did you get the warning from Jonathan?

It's from Google.  I use Safari and it just kind of does that now and again...

Here's the (safe to view) report on the page - http://google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?tpl=safari&site=ngm.nationalgeographic.com&hl=en-us

Thanks for that Jonathan. Fascinating. There is no sign of the rogue site in the scripts - on the main page anyway. I will add a big BUT. My neighbour, the wildlife photographer, was trawling Nat Geo just before he picked up a virus so nasty it took me the best part of a day to clean his PC. But then he was running IE6 and XP. And MacAfee, which was what it attacked. Maybe he got it from there. We'll never know. At least he's running Firefox and NoScript now.

So does Safari automatically sign you up for google safe browsing?

Must admit I haven't bothered with it. Perhaps I should . .
