[inquirer]Massive hack hits one-handed surfers

MCAFEE BOFFINS RECKON that about 200,000 web pages have been infected by a massive hack project which comes just after last Thursday’s cyber attack in which 10,000 sites were hit.

In Thursday’s attack, cyber criminals had rigged 10,000 pages to hijack unsuspecting user computers, to gain access to personal user information.

This latest and significantly bigger attack has apparently been underway for about a week, in which time it has managed to do inordinate amounts of damage by worming its way through about 200,000 web pages.

The infected pages run phpBB forum software which is embedded with a Javascript file linking to the site hosting the hack attack. The hackers are using a porn site to host their infected pages, and try to dupe lusty users into downloading the malicious files.

Basically, users are enticed into installing a fake video codec to be able to view a particularly racy video. But of course, instead of getting the said codec, and being able to satisfy their video urges, the horny user gets a Trojan and a large malware package instead.

In fact, you could call it a sexually transmitted computer virus. µ

Who would've thought it? Malware and viruses from a porn site?

People should be aware; never download suspicious looking video codecs from pretty much any website.
