Went to the JB Hifi (NZ) website this morning and it was try to push dodgy PDFs, etc on me. (So make sure your computer is patched if you want to check it out)

I wonder what vulnerability was the cause.

If you search for the site, Google says that it's malicious, and says in the summary

.....
Of the 3 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 2 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2009-11-27, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2009-11-27.
.....

Does anyone know what software Google is using as bait?

avaast is blocking it via IE.. index.php on the '..girl' website... looks like there's two instances of it trying to contact that page when you load their main page.
