A report from a reader was received by PC Mag regarding fake AV while on newsweek.com:

First, it's kind of outrageous that a prominent site like Newsweek can be affected by such a phenomenon, although that too is an old story. Fake advertising is a disturbingly common problem. In the Newsweek case, I was one page off the home page having clicked the "Politics" link and suddenly the browser was taken over by the fake dialog box nearby.

This and all the other screens, which are intended to resemble a local PC program, are in fact HTML coming from advancedpcscanner6.com. The domain was registered on September 3 to Prakit A Jiraporn of Bangkok.
