After an embarrassing malware outbreak Sunday and Monday, Startribune.com digital boss Jason Erdahl says users can safely surf back to the site now. As noted yesterday, the Strib disabled third-party ad networks around lunchtime, which disabled the malware’s ability to be transmitted.
The malware never affected Apple machines; Erdahl says most PC-network admins restored access to the site late Monday. He hopes to restore the ad networks today — which may send a few shivers among outraged users infected over the past two days. Hopefully, the site will have better ad screening in place going forward.
