Hello All,

One of the pages on Atmel.com, "Tools & Software" in the AVR 8-bit section tries to load malware to the computer. Avast claims it's this application:
http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cven...
Also pop-ups with ladies does occur.

I've tried it on several computers in the office, it's probably on their side and not a local problem with my computer.

Please take care with browsing this page. The URL is http://www.atmel.com/dyn/product...

Kind regards
Bjorn

Crap, you're right. It's another *&^ing IFRAME and javascript injection. I'll email them.

Maybe that was why I temporarily couldn't get to Atmel's site earlier today...
