F-Secure has reported about a compromise of Bank of India’s website. This news originally comes from the Sunbelt Blog.
There exists a malicious code that has apparently been inserted into the sections on the site that tries to compromise the visitor’s computer. The code then tries to install malware containing a number of worms, on the targeted victim. Here’s what the security site reads:
- On the front page of the site a hidden iframe has indeed been inserted and it loads a URL from another website.
- This file in turn uses three iframes to load three other URLs.
Update: The malicious iframe has been removed from the front page and it’s now safe to visit the site again.
Well, the last line should surely give most of us a sigh of relief!
