Today I clicked on an tweet I was following with the URL below.
It immediately took me to this site
Obviously (to me anyway) a Fake AV site. It was supposed to take me to this location http://wordpress.tweetmeme.com/story/1465642530/woopra-wordpress-plugin-145-updated
When I attempted to close the dialog box, it then tried to download this to me.
Naturally – I didn’t allow it to run.
I’ve attempted to reproduce the issue a couple of times but can not. I therefore suspect there’s something not quite right with their site. I can only conclude that the Tweetmeme.com site is again infected with some advertising based malware that autoredirected me to this rogue site. Watch out people there’s bad stuff out there.
Many thanks for bringing this issue to our attention. Should you ever see anything like this on the TweetMeme website please do send an e-mail to support at tweetmeme.com or webmaster at tweetmeme.com and we’ll be able to respond to these issues as quickly as possible.
The issue above has now been resolved. Thank you for the detailed description of what happened and URL’s it made it a lot easier to look into.
Keep in touch!

Thanks very much for the comment – and yes – I will know who to email next time – I communicated with your team members after the last outbreak and they followed up. Glad it was of some assistance.
Your a star! 🙂
