From the Economist:

PageFair, was hacked. If you visited economist.com at any time between Oct. 31, 23:52 GMT and 01:15 GMT, Nov. 1, using Windows OS and you do not have trusted anti-virus software installed; it is possible that malware, disguised as an Adobe update, was downloaded onto your PC.

What's PageFair? Oh, just the latest countermeasure to ad-blocking software. Good show Economist. Looking forward to your next article on internet snooping.
