The article is talking about malicious websites impersonating USB driver sites.

I had personal experience with this. I found a website posing as a sony xperia driver site. If I had not opened the Sony site first I would of fallen for it.

Have any of experienced any fake driver sites before?

    Thankfully I don’t have any experience with fake driver sites, but I did go through the hassle of looking for a driver for Nexus One when it was still running :S. Anyway to stay on the safe side if you are looking for any drivers there is a good chance that its posted on XDA so look there first.

      xda is safe bet for drivers and from sources. I am continually impressed with the sony x10 forum. This phone is old but there are still dedicated devs working on this phone. The have several solid ics rooms and a couple job roms

    Wow, I have never heard of this. However, as previously stated, I get my kits and drivers from either the manufactures site or XDA.
