Trend Micro Site Trojan Infection

The virus encyclopedia on Trend Micro's web site was recently hacked in an attack that spread Trojans to visitors.

The attack, apparently, may have been part of an injection attack affecting 20,000 web sites last week. The attack references JavaScript attack code that redirects users to an infected web site in China.

Sophos, hardly an unbiased observer as a competitor to Trend Micro, had details of the attack on their web site.

Sophos also has an interesting technical paper on web security, in general, on their site.
