I got a nasty trojan last week from a legitimate news site. It got through two firewalls, a malware blocker, a virus program, and two popup blockers. It apparently infiltrated an originally harmless department store ad on the news site, then spoofed that company's "special offer" window. The first thing it did was disable Task Manager and the services window, so I couldn't kill it.

Took me all week to get rid of the damned thing and there are still traces showing up.
