London Stock Exchange website hit by malware scare
The website of the London Stock Exchange was hit by a drive-by-download attack over the weekend.

According to information security blogger Paul Mutton, writing on his 'High Severity' blog, the London Stock Exchange website was propagating malware to its visitors on Sunday. Visitors were infected by a rogue anti-virus that uses a software vulnerability to run native executable code on the victim's computer.
