Trojan trouble at Lenovo
Lenovo's web site for service and support-related training (www.lenovoservicetraining.com) is infected and is spreading the hackload.AD trojan. Although Lenovo was informed of the issue yesterday (Monday), the vendor appears to have difficulties with solving the problem or even officially warning its users. At least the page has now been marked as dangerous in Google's Safe Browsing API, which allows browsers such as Firefox or Chrome, to block the page. The virus scanners by ESET, Kaspersky and Avast all reportedly (German language link) now detect the attack and prevent an infection from the site.
