A section of China’s official Xinhua news Web site was hacked and was serving malware last month, however, Google’s safe browsing service is still labeling it as unsafe despite the fact that it was fixed more than a week ago.

The hack is one of several high-profile compromises of government sites recently. The U.S. Department of the Treasury site on Monday was found to have a malicious iFrame exploit that directed browsers to a site in the Ukraine that served malware, according to AVG researcher Roger Thompson.
