Beware visiting Samsung’s site



Betanews is reporting that Samsung’s site has been hacked and is currently serving up malware in some areas. user intervention is required for it to run on the users pc, but be cautious. Samsung has been notified, but as of Friday morning (according to the report) the trojan horse is still there. I really wonder if it hasn’t occured to them to pull the whole thing offline to clean things up?
