SNIPPET: “IDG News Service - Three Web sites belonging to the U.S. Department of the Treasury have been hacked to attack visitors with malicious software, security vendor AVG says.”
SNIPPET: “According to Thompson, hackers had added a small snippet of virtually undetectable iframe HTML code that redirected visitors to a Web site in Ukraine that then launched a variety of Web-based attacks based on a commercially available attack-kit called the Eleonore Exploit pack.
The Ukrainian Web site was associated with similar attacks in the past. Those attacks targeted a handful of known software bugs, including flaws in Adobe’s Reader software.”
We really need to send some people over to go kinetic on those guys -- just a whole bunch of them, all at once.
