Several comments have been posted to my blog recently about a malvertizement problem at mininova.org:

Anyway, I went looking and found a thread that claimed the malvertizements had been identified and removed on 5 May so I didn't take things any further (a decision which may have been a mistake)

Kimberley has now identified a malvertizement on mininova.org, again hosted by Akamai:

The domains being used by the malvertizers are:

adoptserver.info
iexplorer-security.org
mystats.com
fastwebway.com
xponlinescanner.com

The malvertizement has been reported to Akamai.
