Perhaps more schadenfreude?

Tried to get on the FFXIclopedia wiki tonight...

Got two malware warnings on the first two pages I tried to visit tonight, and was able to safely back out.

Someone actually going after the FFXI Net community? Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of people, if so...

ON EDIT: Upon a closer look, it sounds like someone has decided to get into wikia itself, as about 100 wikia domains, according to the Google Safe Search page I was able to put up, have been apparently hit. Perhaps malware on the ads or something?

Firefox + AdBlock + NoScript = your best defense.

Yep, I think it ended up the ads, frankly. The info on the page would load, and then the warning screen would come up afterward. So sounds like someone loaded something nefarious into one of the ads yesterday, the 4th.
