Sunbelt Blog reported that the Bank of India website has been seriously compromised. That was about 8 hours ago. I just checked and it is still infected.

Digg it

Wow. That's just interesting. Although I did laugh at the Webpronews article when it said that both websites ran on Windows. Laughing

Actually Apache servers get hacked as often, if not more often, than Windows servers. If the server software and server side scripts are not kept updated and patched, along with any web apps, it leaves the door open for hackers. Just like your PC can get infected and 0wned if your OS and programs are not kept patched and updated.

Personally I don't find any humor at all in websites getting hacked.

The only comedy here is involved in trying to get the people running the site to get the malware taken offline. Not going too well from the sounds of it.

The problem is the malicious iframe link. The malware is actually coming from the site in the iframe link and sites it links to. The iframe sites are known to belong to a criminal group that routinely hack sites to spread malware.

Now that it's daytime in India, hopefully they will be able to take down the malicious code.

AND they must patch the site, or it will get hacked again.
