Superbowl Gets Sacked By Trojans

Unread postby Nick-YF19 » February 2nd, 2007, 11:01 pm

The web site for Dolphin Stadium, where Super Bowl XLI will be played, got hacked and malicious code was added to it, Websense Security Labs reports. The web site for the Miami Dolphins, who play in Dolphin Stadium, also was attacked and infected with the same malware. The hackers changed the web page so it downloaded a file called w1c.exe to your computer. If your computer is not up to date on Windows security updates, then the hackers could get complete control of your computer. The good news is that all of the web sites have been fixed and are no longer offering the trojan.

The websites hosting the malware have been cleaned and no longer have the trojans. This still highlights why you need to stay up to date with security updates from Microsoft. Go to Microsoft Update now to make sure you are up to date on patches.
