    Unhappy West Virginia Cops

    The West Virginia police have a new site for reporting crime anonymously it would seem............

    Shame they don't know how to secure it

    New WV State Police site infested with malware

    The Charleston Gazette-Mail reported this morning that the WV State Police is in the process of launching a new site to report crime.
    CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- It won't replace calls to 911, but the West Virginia State Police soon will launch a Web site that it hopes will make reporting crimes easier.

    The Web site, www.wvcrime.com, will allow the members of the public to submit an anonymous tip or a full-blown crime report, said State Police Sgt. Christopher Casto.

    The site will be ready "in the next few weeks," he said. "It's in the finals stages of testing and setting up."

    The site will cut down on phone calls to the State Police and will allow people to make complaints without talking directly to a trooper, Casto said.

    "We're hoping that people will be more comfortable reporting crimes if they can do it anonymously through their computer," he said.
    Readers report when they visit the site that get a message, "Your computer might be infected and to click OK to install Antivirus2009." Hackers have inserted javascript that links to the site that holds the actual malware.

    Antivirus2009 is a very bad piece of malware that affects computers running Windows.

    Thanks, it doesn't want to play nice. I copied most of the article anyway.

    Just click on the "search blog" with the box empty and it should take you there (for now)
