For the last four days, my anti-virus software has been blocking a possible virus when I visit some popular news sites. The URL flagged as a virus is a subdomain of eclampsialemontree.net that has a long string of random characters and looks highly suspicious. A report on VirusTotal indicates two anti-virus providers are blacklisting that domain as a malware site.

The latest site where I encountered this virus alert was a story on Stars and Stripes. I'm not embedding a link for obvious reasons, but it has the headline "Veteran, one of 4,200 mistakenly declared dead by VA, feels 'resurrected.'"

In the Google Chrome developer console, I can see that when the story is read, the URL is being loaded in an XmlHttpRequest by this JavaScript code on the news page:

<script src="http://s.ppjol.net/lightbox/pp4.js"></script>
<script>
if (!navigator.userAgent.match(/StripesApp/i)) {
  var pp = { client: { config: { 'zone':"-jmtl7NTsKXjcoZnYuS2qB", 'mode':"universal", 'debug':0, 'precheck': function(){ return 1; } } } };
}
</script>

This code is provided by Press Plus, a company that manages newspaper subscription paywalls. I think the purpose of the script is to superimpose a box above the story that urges a reader to subscribe to the site.

The script does not have any reference to eclampsialemontree.net, so I don't know why it is attempting to make a connection to one of its subdomains.

I've encountered this 24 times on different news sites. I'd like to figure out why it's happening. I post a lot of links to news stories on the Drudge Retort and I can't link to a site I believe might have been compromised by a virus.

Happens to me too. Newsinc.com , a site with sensationalist news/media that my 10yr old has visited is hosting frame content from eclampsialemontree.net


 

I'm getting the same behavior when I visit www.DallasNews.com. I'm using Eset NOD32. If I try to visit their sports page, sportsday.DallasNews.com, I get a popup telling me I've used up my free visits.

And he also dropped the contact email (lexiefinance@yahoo.co.uk) From the joy and happiness in the post he made, I decided to also give it a shot, so I contacted the email address, I was replied after a while, and did as I was told.
