Republicans infect voters with Storm Trojan
« on: 17. September 2007., 16:28:38 »
ANYONE WHO visited a US Republican website recently might like to scan their systems for the Storm Trojan.

According to PC World at least one Republican Party web site has been hacked and been spreading a variation of the long-running Storm Trojan horse.

Dan Hubbard, head of research at Websense, said that it was the first time that Storm has infected users via the web and not through files attached to e-mail or through links embedded in spam.

Users visiting hacked sites are instantly infected with the Trojan if their browsers are not patched against whatever exploit the IFRAME code is throwing out.

A Republican Party Web site for the 1st Congressional District of Wisconsin was hacked and delivered enough of the Trojans for Websense to detect it. The site has since been fixed
