"Team Economist advises that anyone who received what appeared to be a Flash update from the website should change all of their passwords on their computer, and notify their banks and other financial institutions to check for suspicious activity."

I hope they told their readers to get rid of the nasty before they changed their passwords, otherwise it's a bit pointless. Of course I could go to the Economist site & see for myaself exactly what they said but I think I'll give that a miss.

If any of their readers sustains damage from this who's going to be liable, the Economist or PlayFair?
