Amnesty International's site serving Chinese malware

Last weekend I upset some dude when I suggested that Amnesty International might not be worthy of his charitable contributions - citing administrative incompetence as well as their track record of taking their eye off the ball and cosying up to repressive regimes.

Now it turns out they've been serving malware from one of their servers - most likely targetting human rights workers out in the field.

The hackers are most likely Chinese. Amnesty have a very poor track record as regards their info security.

Sad.
