I was just accosted by a popup that insisted I click a box to confirm my membership! I tried reloading the page, but was kicked off TR, and had to navigate back to this article from a Bing search! Maybe TR is the new watering hole for malware writers? Good thing I have EMET configured!
Anyway - I just wanted to add that lately it has become very difficult to acquire zero day exploits from the usual resources.
