I was just reading an article in the tech section of the Washington Post titled Cyberjustice: an impossible dream. It involves someone who says the are trying to track down the source of the rogue software Antivirus7. I had just finished the article when low and behold my microsoft security essentials alerted and said it blocked the very same virus. I immediately shut down and did a scan in safemode with security essentials and mbam and removed av7 is this a coincidence or what?Just wanted to know if this has happened to anyone else

I'd wager either that specific article was targeted by a malicious attacker to implant a drive-by (happened once to my college's homepage) or a contextual ad had something to do with it.
