Network World, a news provider for network and IT professionals, is reporting that the Internet security firm Purewire has discovered malware in the PBS Kids’ Curious George web page. Purewire researcher Nidhi Shah told the news site that the company first observed a malware, or malicious software, infection on Monday when a Purewire customer’s computer picked it up. The log-in at the Curious George page may produce an error message that drags the user to a domain where “an attempt to exploit vulnerabilities on the user’s desktop applications is made,” according to the news report. A PBS rep said it is aware of the problem, which should be fixed by Friday afternoon.
