Hotmail and malicious banner advertisements?
Important note: These reports are unconfirmed.
A person has posted a comment to my blog warning that they experienced a redirect while using Hotmail aka Windows Live Mail - you can read the comment here:
Earlier this month I spotted a similar complaint affecting MSN Groups:
I've notified the appropriate parties about both of these reports, but am interested to know if any more of my readers have seen, or heard of, such problems in recent times. If you have done so, please contact me or post a comment. It will be very helpful if you could also tell me on what date(s) the redirct happened, and what country you are in. It would be even better if you can record evidence using Fiddler or Fiddlercap.
The advertising network used by MSN has been infiltrated in the past. Those who have been reading my blog for a long time will remember the outbreak that hit Windows Live Messenger, Hotmail and MSN Groups back in February this year.
