Malware injection on trusted websites

Not a lot the end user can do about this one except trust their AV.
Twit.TV, the producers of Security Now! and iPad Today amongst a vast array of other podcasts, have been the victim of a malicious code injection.
Recent Increase
I have been seeing more such issues, usually classified as ‘Mal/iframe-#‘ where # identifies the specific version.
Just this week I had to argue with a user who wanted me to whitelist such a site, detected as ‘Mal/iframe-w‘.
Leo Targeted
Obviously, the more popular you are the more likely to be stung. Leo Laporte‘s network has a large audience and is a likely target for the Big Bad out there.
Hopefully this will be fixed quickly. I like Twit.TV too much.
