Beware of malware

Beware of malware

The blogger Techdirt, like Korean site OhMyNews, got hit with some malware, and despite running as many as six antispyware programs, it needed help to remove the evil-intentioned code--the kind of stuff that tries to penetrate databases and steal personal information. And Techdirt seems tech savvy. This means, to my mind, that using spyware and firewalls on your site is not an absolute guarantee of keeping malware out, and if something seems fishy, you might ask for help from those in the know. I've asked Techdirt where they went for help.
