I've written this article sometime early this year about how people spread virusses trough popular sites, addons with exe files, or advertisements that highjack your browser.

Today, allakhazam thott and wowhead are affected due to rightmedia's advertisements either being highjacked or willingly spreading a virus.

Source?

I'm not doubting you, but I would just like to know how you find out about these things so quickly. Quicker the better, ya know?

I encountered the virus on allakhazam myself.
Plus received reports from others on the forum shortly after posting the warning on the eu forums.
