    Exclamation Multimap Virus Alert

    Our company IT have just put this out to staff:

    The Multimap web site appears to have become the victim of hacking. If you visit the site you will automatically be redirected to a "Malware Alarm" site warning you that your machine is infected with Malware and that you should download a scanner from their site.

    This is a scam intended to download spyware on to your machine. Please do not download any files of this nature.
    If you need to use a mapping tool, then better to avoid Multimap for the time being and use something like Google Maps.

    Just tried it - well you had to didn't you! lol - and no redirection/malware warning. Not a hoax is it? I was using Firefox though.

    EDIT: Same with IE6

    yep first thing I did when I read it was try the site! no warning that i could see, however the various advert frames around the site are blocked over the work network, maybe it was on of those.

    It's just like "Wet Paint" and "HOT! Do not touch!" Signs (well you have to check don't you!).

    Hmm, very odd!! Just went to the site and as before it's all normal. Does it do it when you go to the homepage? i.e. before you start searching for anything.

    Is it possible you've got something undesirable on your PC that is causing this?
