Who else was thinking this?

Today on slashdot I found an article on someone who wanted to know which sites got hit by the download.ject attack. I was curious about this too, every news report on every site was a little vague on that subject, using “popular sites” or “well known sites”. Though I haven’t had much time to clearly set a position on this subject, the writer does some good thinking, though I’m not sure comparing Web Servers to Restaurants is a valid analogy, it’s something to get you thinking. I do feel however, that if get to a website, they should tell me if and when they get infected so that I can know if I need to run an antivirus program or cancel all my credit cards. I’m sure something as silly as that would actually lower possible legal actions compared to being secretive about it with a possibility of being exposed later.
