Asus Web site harbors threat


It is not such a Good Friday for ASUStek Computer. The main Web site of the Taiwanese hardware maker, known for its Asus branded PCs and motherboards, has been rigged by hackers to serve up malicious software that attempts to exploit a critical Windows flaw, security experts said Friday.

The attackers added an invisible frame, a so-called iframe, to the front page of the Asus.com Web site. When visiting the site, a victim's browser will silently connect to another Web site that tries to install a malicious program. Asus Web site harbors threat | News.blog | CNET News.com
