    I traced the IP address of that fake antivirus website and it points to the Ukraine.

    I should also point out that Linux was completely unaffected by this browser exploit.

    Advantage Linux!

    I almost forgot to mention that I did not access this attack site directly. I was re-directed to this site by clicking on a picture link while searching Google Images for an old actress named Linda Darnell.

    The re-direction site is registered in India.
