"The code inserted in some Web pages of the site was meant to redirect the visitor to a malicious server that would download malware capable of stealing passwords on an infected computer, Trend Micro spokesman Michael Sweeny said. The attempt, however, failed.

"We now know that the redirect on the site was broken code," Sweeny said. "It didn’t work properly and didn’t infect anybody."

Sweeny declined to provide further details, but said that such attacks in general typically involve the use of ActiveX controls, a Microsoft technology used in building user interfaces; and JavaScript, a popular scripting language supported by most Web browsers." – Content courtesy of Trend Micro Details Its Recent Failed Web Attack — Security — InformationWeek
