Massive iFrame attacks on top Web sites still threaten online searches. The threat is not just continuing but, according to independent Internet security researcher Dancho Danchev, is getting bigger as well.
Trend Micro has recently reported two high-traffic sites that were iFramed earlier this month. The said attack relied on popular search terms that were not validated in search engines. Interestingly, this previous attack came less than a week after search results of popular Web sites ZDNet Asia and TorrentReactor were also found to have been iFramed.
Danchev says that the current poisoning also leads users to several redirection posts. He again lists what he believes are poisoned sites. These include the following:
- Packard Bell.com
Trend Micro Threat Response engineers analyzed the said pages and found no traces of an ongoing compromise. The sites may have been already fixed by the time of our engineers’ verification. However, the threat in general continues to persist, as it would be very possible to encounter iFrame injections in some future time. Security researchers have yet to close in on a foolproof way to lock down a site from being compromised.
