We were apparently hacked but as far as I know things are back under control. Apologies!!
But apparently, the site is still redirecting viewers to malware sites in a persistent attempt to force antivirus downloads.

At least the hackers seem to be getting a little wiser with their move from the Times Web site to its blogs. Although an environmental blog is still an odd choice.
If the technological pranksters really want to make waves, they should hack Gawker. People might actually go to that site.
