Hackers Attack U.S. Consulate Site, Infect Web Pages


The Web site for the U.S. Consulate in Russia was hacked into earlier this week, infecting pages with malware that would attack visitors.

Researchers at security company Sophos told InformationWeek that the consulate's IT team cleaned up the infection within a matter of days. They also reported that the break in was part of a widespread attack that resulted in more than 400 Web pages around the world being infected over the last week by what appears to be the same hacker group.
