An update to my post earlier this week, Bloggers beware! Viruses via Blogspot, eWeek reports on the problem in this article, Spyware Snags Blogger Users, and interviews the lawyer, Alvin Borromeo, who reported the problem.

According to eWeek, a spokesperson for Google, which owns Blogger, said that the company was aware of the spyware issue but declined to say how it would respond. “We are aware of this issue, and we are looking into it,” the spokesperson told eWeek.
