The hacked page of cinema-systemsindia.com,self proclaimed india's leading cinemagazine leads to a couple a silent trojan downloads.At the time of writing the post the trojans arent detected by any of the major antivirus firms except NOD32 (scan).AVG AV with its Link Scanner completely fails here. Internet Explorer users get completely owned but google and Firefox 3 users are warned about the malicious content on the page

Using an updated antivirus system isnt a sufficient solution for a windows desktop system,the most surprising thing is that all the trojans downloaded from the hacked url were not detected by any of the major av's(scan1). The inbuilt heuristic scanning is pretty useless.
