    Important - a popular website is pushing a really bad Citadel trojan infection today.

    The banking Trojan known as Citadel, which debuted in underground forums in January 2012, has evolved to become one of the financial industry's greatest worries, cybersecurity experts say.

    Citadel, an advanced variant of Zeus, is a keylogger that steals online-banking credentials by capturing keystrokes. Fraudsters then use stolen login IDs and passwords to access online accounts, take them over and schedule fraudulent transactions.

    Looks like it might also be affecting some of their ancillary sites, like latenightwithjimmyfallon.com and others.

    I shudder to think if this had been msnbc's site, CNN, etc...
