Websense appears to be the one web watchdog that has been slow to clear LA Observed from its malware list. That's why computers at the L.A. Times, some other companies and state agencies that subscribe to Websense have been blocked from visiting the past couple of days. I'm told the blacklisting for those readers should be lifted shortly. Bloomberg News allowed its staffers to read LA Observed today after checking with Websense -- "they have confirmed that your site was confirmed clean as of this morning," a senior network engineer at Bloomberg told me. The web's main malware spotters, Google and stopbadware.org, show LAO as clean and have since that infection was discovered and purged a couple of weeks ago.
