IF magazines interview with Juliet Landau Part 1. "It was surprisingly easy to find her voice again. I keep a file of all of my work, so I have all of my scripts." Changed to a different new interview until shewired.com site is fixed.

Shewired Link disabled owing to "Reported Attack Site!" warning - Simon. We've been assured that the site will be fixed shortly.

Heads up! Malicious code warning. Possible attack site.

Firefox (via Google Safe Browsing) is reporting to me that this site is suspect as of sometime today. 13 exploits from 4 different domains - malicious code installed w/o users' consent. Report is brand new - appeared when I navigated to the second page of the article. Now it appears with the first page, too.

The 4 sites look to be widget / ad sites read in on "She Wired". So, I don't think the main site is malicious or site owners doing anything nasty. I think they're linked to stuff that's ill-behaved.

Anybody connected to the admins / owners of She Wired might want to contact them. Get the problem cleaned up if true. or squash the warning if false. Meanwhile mobile code is lots of fun - and carries the usual problems of promiscuity.

Report is here:
http://safebrowsing.clients.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?client=Firefox&hl=en-US&site=http://shewired.com/Article.cfm?ArticlePage=2&ID=23361
i clicked on the link and my anti-virus (AVG free version) immediately reported a ton of infections that continued to multiply until i disconnected from the ether. i'd say the site's deffo infected :(
Makes me glad I run Linux / Firefox in a fairly secure configuration. I got the warning, but nothing that multiplied beyond that.

So that's 2 reports. Can we do something with the headline before that site clip too many more people?
I've edited the link accordingly.

ETA: One of the staffers at the site sent us this message

"The link on SheWired.com will be fixed shortly. The site was attacked overnight.

Apologies for the confusion."
Just a note to add the virus is *not* over at iF Magazine, which is where the current link takes people.
