The Gumblar exploit seems to be the biggest exploit I’ve ever reviewed in my blog. About a thousand visitors come to read my article about Gumblar every day. This exploit accounts for about 80% of positives on Unmask Parasites and I still don’t see any sign of its decline.
I found some more interesting facts about this exploit in SophosLab’s and ScanSafe’s blogs and would like to share them with you.
“Troj/JSRedir-R accounts for some 42% of all malicious infections found on websites in the last seven days, massively overshadowing its nearest rival – Mal/Iframe-F – at 7%.
Sophos say that their products currently detect this exploit, however it may change any time (as it once did) and if your site is infected, you can help by sending infected files to them (details here)
ScanSafe also have a great Gumblar Q&A:
Hope this information will make you more serious about your own PC security. Having penetrated your PC, hackers are one step closer to your site (and your business).
Scan both you local computer and your web site regularly.
