Poisonous websites

The BBC is carrying a story about how a strong of retail websites are recovering from an attack by "malicious code".

Apparently travel sites and hotel booking portals are on the victim list alongside estate agents, butchers and car spares specialists.

It's a long shot, but anyone out there fallen prey to this?

"A popular travel website based in Croydon is one of hundreds of sites to have been attacked by a mysterious virus that is sweeping across the internet.

Directline-holidays, which offers cheap package holidays, is one of at least 200 sites - many UK-based - to be affected by a sinister computer virus"
