Websense® Security Labs™ has discovered that the official website of Dolphin Stadium has been compromised with malicious code. The Dolphin Stadium is currently experiencing a large number of visitors, as it is the home of Sunday's Super Bowl XLI. The site is linked from numerous official Super Bowl websites and various Super Bowl-related search terms return links to the site.

A link to a malicious javascript file has been inserted into the header of the front page of the site. Visitors to the site execute the script, which attempts to exploit two vulnerabilities: MS06-014 and MS07-004. Both of these exploits attempt to download and execute a malicious file.


Users with fully patched Windows machines should not be affected. Unpatched machines are vulnerable to this exploit.

The site owners have been notified. Hopefully it will be cleaned up very soon.

Reports are that the Miami Dolphins website is also affected. Don't go there unless your computer is fully patched.

Sites seem to be clean now. The webmaster may need to take a long look at the security of the web sites.
