LizaMoon Virus Infects Websites and Servers

To all webmasters, please secure your web server and your site’s admin password. LizaMoon virus will not go away overnight. The virus will stay and continue its attack binge.

Here’s the news from Reuters:

More than one million website pages have been hit by a sophisticated hacking attack that injects code into sites that redirect users to a fraudulent software sales operation.

The so-called “mass-injection” attack, which experts say is the largest of its kind ever seen, has managed to insert malicious code into websites by gaining access to the servers running the databases behind the Internet, according to the technology security company that discovered it.

Websense, which first found evidence of the attack earlier this week, has called it ‘LizaMoon,’ after the site to which the malicious code first directed its researchers.
