The malicious payload is an exploit kit at computerpills.net/main.php?page=beb0bb4c8ebd96e5 hosted on (OVH, UK) which is the same server used in this attack, the payload looks to be the same as the one used in this other attack, with a very low detection rate at VirusTotal of just 3/42.

I linked to your blog from the @virusbtn account, as I have done in the past. Someone pointed out that you include literal malicious URLs in your posts and, although they are not clickable, someone could 'accidentally' copy/paste them (perhaps because they misunderstand your blog post) and then get infected. Would it be an idea to either hide part of the URL, or display it in such a way that it's very difficult to copy/paste it in a browser?

Thanks - Martijn
