I know because I found two such pages on Windows Live hosted blogs. I was searching for video content on the “Ida” fossil/prehistoric ancestor find. I discovered a “Gretchen’s Place (space) and another called the same with first female name changed. I listed source and it was loaded with trojans and other malicious software links. It had a video window just like a youtube. I pressed play, it said downloading software for playing HD video, and boom. I caught a trojan undetected by AV program. I’ve seen 3 different clients with same.
