Visiting priuschat.com infects my computer!

Since a few of you here are also priuschat.com users....whenever I've visited the last couple of days, some rogue Java applet has dropped an infected executable on my machine (services.exe in the Temp directory). My virus software finds it right away and quarantines it, but you may want to be wary if you lack confidence in your virus software (or, heaven forbid, don't have any).

I noticed something like that too ... ofcourse my PC didn't let it save the exe at all.

PriusChat apparently was hacked and an exploit inserted into one of the files. It has since been removed. Clear your cache if you still get it.

We mac users don't notice exe files. And why go to a Prius site:)
