Attackers target Russian hosting firm

A Russian hosting company with ties to the UK and the US has become the victim of a huge hack attack, a security firm warned today.

Valuehost is reportedly hosting over 470 servers that are infected with scripts that attempt to run malware on a user's computer.

Security firm Kaspersky Lab reported that a user contacted the company after he had noticed " strange behaviour" from his browser. The antivirus software vendor said the site contained scripts that downloaded a Trojan installer. Attackers target Russian hosting firm - Computeract!ve
