TechRepublic Newsletters infected with Seedabuter.C trojan.

Tags: Off Topic
Every email I have received from Tech Republic since Saturday morning (8/3/13) has been infected with the Trojan:JS/Seedabuter.C trojan as detected by Microsoft Security Essentials.

As soon as I preview a Tech Republic newsletter MSE alerts me to the infection attempt.

Is anybody else having this problem?

Yep, I started getting the same message from Windows Defender. Turns out the TechRepublic RSS feed is also infected with the same trojan.
