malware from compromised sites

According to a handler?s diary entry in SANS ISC, there were a number of compromised sites that hosts a script-tag linking to malicious Javasipt on a Chinese web server.

I took a look at this incident, googling parts of the script-tag gave a quite a good result, there were a couple of compromised sites that hosted this script-tag.

Downloading the file being pointed by the script-tag, I found out it redirects you to a malicious HTML file that has malicious script codes. This HTML file in turn downloads an executable. This HTML file has codes in it for MS06-014. Both the files were already submitted for pattern creation, they will be detected as VBS_PSYCHME.ACU for the HTML file and the executable file being downloaded will be detected as TSPY_WOW.YO.
Virus reports are also being created and will be available in a few moments.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
