NetSeer suffers hack, triggers Google malware warnings

http://j.mp/14NEqBg  (ZDNet)

    If you visited ZDNet earlier today and were warned by Google that you
    were entering a site with known malware, you weren't alone.  Internet
    advertising network NetSeer suffered a hack to its front-end Web site
    today that rippled across the Web sites of its advertising partners.
    The alerts warned visitors who were using the Chrome browser that the
    Web site they were visiting was a "known malware distributor."

Executive Summary: Google did exactly what they're supposed to do.
