Windows 7: My Website links to Malicious sites

It's no bother, I'm not upset, and don't go away you are always welcome.
You must have been asking in a hypothetical way, were you?

it just seemed strange that you would ask because I don't think I made any reference to visiting DextrousDave's site because I haven't.
I did search around the web to learn more about redirects and compare what I learned to DD's malicious code, but I was never at his.

When I first read it really caught my eye when you mentioned me.

Do you think it would have been better if your question was worded like:
Could that bad website left a little free goodie on a visitors browser or any place in their computer?

Seeing it that way would have lead me to build a reply customized to your clarification.

Without doing any research on the subject, I don't think at the present time just a visit to a malicious site can infect a user. s/he has to click on a link to activate the code.

I stand corrected.

But, I have been wondering that myself.
If you visit a site that has some type of flashing ad its already activated, right? I don't know for sure, and I'll look around.

Hope gied has an answer.

Just saw the reply. Thanks gied!

I had an almost identical similar attack on my websites, only to find the code was coming in through an exploit in TinyThumb. I am glad you found a fix for it, but be sure to check all your addons against Wordpress threat reports.
