Exclamation Beware! Hyundai site is spreading Viruses

This is to inform all of you, beware of the Hyundai India Site. Particularly their Verna Microsite. This site is spreading viruses. It becomes even more worrisome if some of you do not run AV software on your machines or have the Active Scanner down.

The first time I did not get the page as the virus warning caused me to choose the closure of the browser. However the second time it happened I noticed the page as well as took a snapshot of it. The price fetcher page on the Verna site downloaded a virus on my comp which the AV said could not be cleaned and rebooted my comp to clean it.

Yup! I confirm abt the virus.
Bad thing is that it tries to sneak in even thru Firefox.

(I need to change the default OS in my grub.
Ubuntu! Here I come!)

Did not want to find out. However if you have an online scanner available on your machine maybe you can give it a try and update others
