Seagate website infects visitors

A website run by hard disk manufacturer Seagate has been infecting visitors with malware for nearly a month (at least).

According to a report from Sophos:
SophosLabs has been tracking an infection of Mal/Iframe-AL on Seagate's blog since late February.
SophosLabs informed Seagate of the issue back in February, but at the time of writing the site remains infected.
Apparently the technical culprit is a couple of dodgy web server components (Apache modules) that are directing visitors to malicious websites using iFrames.

The malicious sites are using Blackhole exploit toolkits to infect victims' systems.
