Fort William Mountain Bike World Cup 2009 Site Hijacked
Websense Security Labs™ ThreatSeeker™ Network has discovered that the
Web site of Fort William Mountain Bike World Cup 2009 has been hijacked
by attackers, and redirects users to rogue AV sites if they visit the
site through well-known search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and MSN.
This site has been injected by the Nine-Ball
malicious code twice this month. Now, the injected code has been
cleaned but system control has been lost without the administrator's
knowledge. Once the attackers gained system control, they likely made
small changes to the configuration of the Web server to redirect any
visitors to rogue AV Web sites if arriving at the site via search
engines. We would like to remind Web masters that a full examination of
the whole system is necessary after removing code injections.
