botnet farming at Super Bowl site

"Super Bowl site hacked, seeded with exploits"

Full access to your computer, via keystroke logger (spyware) backdoor Trojan (you click on what you think is an interactive functionality, like a game, or external link, or forum comment posting, or advertisement), if unpatched Windows system.

Uber horrible news for the ecommerce hopes.


From ZD Net:

[Updated #2: February 2, 2007 @ 5:13 pm] All the affected Miami Dolphins sites (see Alexa traffic data) have now been disinfected but there is evidence that hundreds of other sites have been hijacked and rigged with the malicious JavaScript code. I've confirmed that the one-line code has been planted on an internal page of the U.S. government's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Health Marketing site.
