Malware infestations

I have read a lot regarding “hijacking” of sites by malware spreading buggers. The links on “safe” sites point to some malware hosting sites. I had a recent first hand experience of this. The site (WARNING DO NOT OPEN UNLESS YOU HAVE AN ANTI-VIRUS INSTALLED AND UPDATED OR YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING) hosts or used to host a large collection of free, legal Carnatic and Hindustani concerts. These are uploaded by a dedicated listener community and each user has his own upload space. When I tried to access this yesterday and today, the homepage was fine but clicking on any link in the homepage lead to a site which was related to malware distributing site. Google has marked it as such.  Read there report by Google here. Yesterday, this site was not distributing malware but today it has started installing malware silently on unsuspecting users. Looks like the Chinese and Ruskies have nothing else to do in this world; lost their minds after getting shafted by Mao and Stalin respectively.
