Grub Street and viruses

I really enjoy the Grub Street blog, but in the last few months, about every 5th story I click on causes pop up websites and fake windows messages other kinds of malware. My Norton confirms that's it's blocking virus and trojan attacks. I've sent a couple of emails to grub street, no interest there. Does this happen to anyone else?
